Alton, MO – The Missouri Department of Labor’s On-Site Safety and Health Consultation Program announced the Alton, Missouri, facility of McClain Forest Products LLC as the newest member of the state’s Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP).

“The SHARP program is dedicated to promoting a culture of safety for workers at Missouri businesses,” said Anna Hui, Director of the Department of Labor and Industrial Relations. “Once again, we congratulate the team at McClain Forest Products for achieving their workplace safety goals, and to the Alton facility in joining an elite group of Missouri businesses that includes their Van Buren location.”

The company, a leading supplier of kiln dried hardwood lumber and flooring products, was honored for its achievement during a ceremony on Sept. 7, at its place of business in Alton. Officials from the Missouri Department of Labor attended the event to present McClain Forest Products a SHARP flag and a certificate of recognition issued by Governor Michael L. Parson.

Free On-Site Safety and Health Consultations are provided to businesses at their request.
