November 29, 2017 the Freeport District Office was recommended by Region VI OSHA for participation as a Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star site. OSHA officials conducted a comprehensive and intense safety review in order to determine that the site was not only meeting the VPP expectations, but continuously improving their safety program.
The review involved employee interviews, a comprehensive site walk down and documentation assessment. The review was very successful due to the fact there was zero findings. OSHA had many favorable comments about the cleanliness and orderliness of the site, the safety knowledge of employees and the strong commitment of local management.
Once approved by OSHA, the District Office will be one of twenty-two Total Safety VPP Star sites. Congratulations to all employees at the Freeport District office.
