Altimate Medical (AMI) of Morton was recently re-certified for the MNSHARPS (Minnesota Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program) award by the Minnesota Department of Labor and Safety. This award is granted to firms in Minnesota that achieve and maintain excellence in workplace safety and health. This is the 4th consecutive year AMI has been the recipient of this award. Two employees, Levi Knobloch and Steve Schmidt represented the company and received the award at the Governor’s Safety Award Luncheon held in St. Paul in May.
To achieve this MNSHARPS status, managers and employees must work together to develop and implement safety and health programs that go beyond basic compliance with all OSHA standards.
Altimate Medical presently employs 37 people and has been in business for 14 years. They manufacture and sell EasyStand’s, a device that assists the physically handicapped to stand. AMI recently completed an addition to their facility in Morton, which more than doubled the office space.
