Chevron Division Gets Top Honors in OSHA's VPP

The Chevron Energy Services division earned Star Status for work at Fort Detrick.

Chevron Energy Solutions, a unit of Chevron Corporation, announced that its operation of the central utility plant at Fort Detrick has earned Star Status from OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program (VPP).

"We are pleased to recognize Chevron Energy Solutions for excellence in safety and occupational health," said Brett Beall, an OSHA compliance assistance specialist. "There are about 1,700 Voluntary Protection Program sites across the country, which highlights the uniqueness of this award."

"Safety is a top priority for Chevron Energy Solutions and is an important part of our company's culture," said Jim Davis, the division's president. "We appreciate this recognition from OSHA and our continued collaboration at Fort Detrick."

Chevron Energy Solutions designed, constructed, operates, and maintains the central utility plant for Keenan Fort Detrick Energy LLC to support the U.S. Army Garrison and National Interagency Biodefense campus at Fort Detrick, which is located in Frederick, Md. The central utility plant is an energy-efficient plant fueled by natural gas or fuel oil and has been delivering reliable steam, chilled water, and high-quality/conditioned standby emergency power since 2008 to support multiple agencies, including the National Institutes of Health's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Integrated Research Facility, Department of Homeland Security's National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center, U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, and Fort Detrick's Steam Sterilization Plant.

"As the first U.S. Army Garrison to receive Star Status from OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program, we congratulate Chevron Energy Solutions for also attaining this recognition for their operation of the Central Utility Plant at Fort Detrick," said Major General James Gilman, commanding general Fort Detrick. "We appreciate the company's support for the garrison's commitment to safety and health."

Chevron's Briarpark facility in Houston was recently re-evaluated and has maintained Star status through four reapproval cycles.
