Description: The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has again awarded Star designation in its Voluntary Protection Program to Hellman & Associates Inc., an environmental safety and health, industrial hygiene, and safety compliance management consulting firm. OSHA recognized the company for having an effective pre-task plan, job hazard analysis and strong culture of safety and health excellence, management commitment and employee engagement.
Background: The VPP Star is OSHA’s highest level of recognition of employers and workers who have employed effective safety and health management systems and kept injury and illness rates below the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ industry averages. VPP programs bring company management, site employees and OSHA together to work proactively to focus on hazard prevention and control, worksite analysis, training, management commitment and worker involvement to prevent fatalities, injuries and illnesses.
Prospective VPP participants apply to OSHA for consideration, and then undergo a rigorous onsite evaluation by a team of safety and health professionals. Learn more about the VPP.
Duration: Hellman & Associates Inc.’s VPP Star certification has been renewed for three years.
Quote: “Hellman & Associates is a great example for a company seeking to develop and implement highly effective safety and health management systems. For 13 years, they have held Star designation and have generously helped other companies achieve VPP recognition,” explained OSHA Regional Administrator Jennifer Rous in Denver. “As we renew their status for another three years, we applaud their commitment to setting high standards when it comes to keeping their employees and their clients’ employees safe at work.”
