Flight Options Earns Safety Honor

Nevada’s Safety Consultation and Training Section Recognizes Local Business For Creating Safe, Healthy Work Environment For Employees And Residents

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – The Safety Consultation and Training Section (SCATS) of the State of Nevada’s Division of Industrial Relations has recognized Flight Options Maintenance Facility in Las Vegas, Nev. for successful completion of the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP).

The no-cost SHARP program is designed to assist employers to develop and implement effective safety and health programs. SHARP assists businesses to improve their return on investment, be in compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and create added value of reducing their accident costs.

Founded in 1998 and headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Flight Options has earned a reputation as a leader and innovator within the private aviation industry by offering the complete spectrum of programs from fractional ownership to leasing, aircraft management, and JetPASS Membership. Flight Options has the largest dedicated aircraft maintenance network in the industry with maintenance bases in Cleveland, Las Vegas, Nev., Teterboro, NJ and West Palm Beach, Fla. Flight Options has a fleet of more than 110 aircraft consisting of the Hawker 400XP, Hawker 800XP, Citation X, and Legacy 600. Arriving in late 2009, Flight Options will take delivery of the Phenom 300 by Embraer.

“When Flight Options opened its facility in Las Vegas in 2008, SCATS offered an abundance of resources and expertise to help us exceed compliance with the regulations and implement industry best practices for employee health and safety,” said Benny Rios, facility general manager. “SCATS has been invaluable in helping with many questions, training materials and industrial hygiene services. We have relied on them to either know the answers or point us in the right direction to someone who does. We are thankful to their dedicated staff of consummate professionals.”

As part of the SHARP program, SCATS consultants provide employers with no-cost hazard identification, program development and implementation assistance. Employers who are able to implement effective safety and health programs and have a days away from work and restricted transfer rate below the national average for their industry group are recognized by SCATS. Successful SHARP participants receive a two-year exemption from OSHA’s general schedule inspections.

Businesses interested in the SHARP program can contact SCATS at 702.486.9140.  For more information on SCATS, or for a schedule of training courses offered at no charge by SCATS, call toll free 1.877.4SAFENV, or visit www.4safenv.state.nv.us.
