El Paso Postal Distribution Center Achieves VPP Recognition

The U.S. Postal Service, El Paso Postal Distribution Center, has earned merit recognition in OSHA's Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) for its employee health and safety achievements. The recognition ceremony took place today at 8401 Boeing Drive.

"The United States Postal Service's El Paso Distribution Center is to be commended for exceeding OSHA's VPP minimum standards," said Dean W. McDaniel, the agency's regional administrator in Dallas. "The company's outstanding efforts at this site include maintaining an injury and illness rate that is 51 percent below the national average for this industry."

The El Paso Distribution Center processes first class, express, and priority mail, bulk business mail and newspapers to the El Paso and Las Cruces, N.M., areas. This facility also loads and unloads contract trucks that make about 60 trips per day from the 14 El Paso postal stations it services.

VPP is one of OSHA's recognition programs for employers and employees who have implemented exemplary workplace safety and health management systems. Management, labor and OSHA work cooperatively and proactively to prevent injuries, illnesses, and workplace hazards. As part of attaining VPP status, employers must demonstrate management commitment to the safety and health of their employees and actively involve employees in supporting their safety and health management system.
