If you believe that safety and health are essential to a successful business, then START may be the program for you.

START can give you the boost and the recognition benefits for safety and health excellence.

The START program is open to employers operating non–construction work sites in Washington State and is administered by the Department of Labor & Industries.

Employers with fewer than 50 workers at a specific work site and not more than 250 at all work sites within Washington State are the primary focus for this program.

Additionally, employers must be in operation for at least 1 year at the specific work site that is being considered for START certification. The employer's injury/illness rate for the preceding year must also be below their industry's average for the location being considered for START.

Expand or collapse. See other businesses who have achieved START certification
