Beall’s, Inc., is the parent company for Beall’s Department Stores, Beall’s Outlet Stores and Burke’s Outlet Stores. It operates more than 375 retail store sites in southern states from Florida to California. After a Beall’s safety area manager expressed an interest in pursuing the SHARP award, the division committed to correcting all hazards that were identified during a full safety and health inspection by the USF SafetyFlorida office headquartered in Tampa. In September 2006, the main distribution and transportation branch located in Bradenton was awarded OSHA’s SHARP award for an effective safety and health program. At this branch, merchandise is brought in from vendors to be unpacked, re-packed, distributed according to stores, and then shipped and delivered to the retail sites. Today, Beall’s Distribution and Transportation division has a DART rate of 3.2, significantly below the 5.6 industry rate.
