Department of Defense Commercial Airlift Review Board (CARB)
The U.S. Department of Defense expects air carriers that do business with the government to adhere to advanced safety and quality standards.

Oregon OSHA SHARP (Safety and Health Achievement Program) Employer (2013-2016)
The Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) is a program that encourages employer self-sufficiency in safety and health management. SHARP is a recognition program which provides an incentive and road map for Oregon employers to work with their employees to find and correct hazards, to develop and implement effective Safety and Health Programs, to continuously improve, and to become self-sufficient in managing occupational safety and health. Each of Erickson’s Southern Oregon locations completed the 5 year implementation phase of the program in 2013, with certification awarded in December of 2013. The SHARP Certification indicates a positive shift toward a higher safety standard. Although the 3 year certification has concluded, Erickson continues to place a high standard on safety for continuous improvement toward a zero injury goal.
