Jacobs Engineering Group Gains VPP Corporate Approval

OSHA announced its approval of the Pasadena, Calif.-based engineering and construction firm on Monday.

Only eight corporations have been admitted to OSHA's Voluntary Protection Programs as Corporate participants, with the eighth announced Monday by the agency. Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. of Pasadena, Calif., is the new addition, recognized by OSHA for excellence in worker safety and health.

VPP Corporate is a program for organizations -- usually large corporations and federal agencies -- that demonstrate a strong commitment to worker safety and health and have adopted VPP on a large scale. According to OSHA, Jacobs has established a standardized corporate-level safety and health management program that is implemented throughout its organization, as well as an internal screening process that evaluates facilities for safety and health performance.

"OSHA can achieve its mission of protecting workers' safety and health if businesses do their part in implementing effective safety and health programs and systems," said Assistant Secretary Dr. David Michaels. "Jacobs Engineering Group has proven its commitment to ensuring a safe environment for its more than 50,000 workers."

Jacobs Engineering Group is among the world's largest providers of professional technical services for clients in aerospace and defense, automotive, chemicals, energy, environmental programs, oil and gas, and pharmaceuticals. Its 2009 revenues exceeded $11 billion.

Information about VPP programs will be shared at next week's 2010 National Safety Congress & Expo in San Diego, Calif. The Voluntary Protection Programs Participants' Association will be exhibiting at booth 1142, while OSHA's booth is 5713.
