“Teleflora has over 270 employees in their Oklahoma City offices and has been working tirelessly for the past 3 years to fulfill all of the SHARP requirements put forth by US Department of Labor.”

In his statement to CapitolBeatOK, Commissioner Costello said “It’s exciting to see an Oklahoma company continue to grow while staying focused on employee safety and health.  SHARP is a rigorous program and takes commitment from both the employees and management. Teleflora has proven that safety comes first.”

“It’s wonderful that we were able to share this wonderful accomplishment during our manager’s meeting today.  We celebrated as a company our biggest success in our business, Mother’s Day and our biggest success in health and safety for our employees, SHARP Certification,” stated Chairman Tom Butler.
