Asphalt Producer Paves the Way for Safety at Two St. Louis-Area Plants

OSHA has recognized the management and employees of Fred Weber Inc. for achievement in the company's employee safety and health program at two St. Louis-area locations.

The South Asphalt Plant in St. Louis and the O'Fallon Asphalt Plant in O'Fallon, Mo., both have been recognized as "star" sites, the highest level of recognition that OSHA's Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) offer, during a ceremony earlier this month. Fred Weber Inc., an asphalt producer, earned VPP star recognition following comprehensive onsite evaluations by a team of OSHA safety and health experts.

"From the top down, Fred Weber Inc. has displayed outstanding effort in implementing a comprehensive safety and health management system," said Charles E. Adkins, OSHA's regional administrator in Kansas City, Mo. "The company is an exemplar of workplace safety."

OSHA's recognition programs include the VPP 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 the safety and health management system.

For more information on VPP, contact OSHA's regional VPP manager at (816) 283-8745.
