OSHA Hand-Delivers 'Star' to Nebraska Post Office

The U.S. Postal Service post office in Hastings, Neb., has earned membership in OSHA's prestigious Voluntary Protection Programs at the "star," or highest, level. A recognition ceremony will be held on Friday at the facility. USPS Hastings employs 45 mail processors, dock employees, mail carriers, customer service representatives, and maintenance staff.

"USPS Hastings has exhibited excellence in safety and health management," said Charles E. Adkins, OSHA's regional administrator in Kansas City, Mo. "The facility's outstanding efforts have included management commitment to safety and health, and employee involvement in safety and health programs."

More than 1,900 worksites nationwide have earned entry into OSHA's VPP. Requirements include a high degree of management support and employee involvement; a high-quality worksite hazard analysis; prevention and control programs; and comprehensive safety and health training for all employees. Each of these elements must be effective, in place, and in operation for at least one year before a company can apply to join the VPP. Information kits about the VPP application and approval processes are available online at http://www.osha.gov/dcsp/vpp/index.html.

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
