Fourteen Delta Sites Boast OSHA Stars

The airline said its Dayton Airport Customer Service team worked for more than a year to earn Star status, which was awarded in a Nov. 7 ceremony.

Delta Air Lines' Dayton, Ohio, location became the 14th site of the airline with Star status in OSHA's Voluntary Protection Programs on Nov. 7, the company announced, adding that it was the first major airline to participate in VPP when its Atlanta Technical Operations facility became the first maintenance base in the industry with the elite Star designation.

"We are very proud of the Dayton team for their unwavering commitment to safety, one of Delta's core values," said Carol Zupancic, Delta's vice president – Airport Customer Service. "OSHA's VPP Star status validates the Dayton team's ability to implement and sustain effective safety processes across all departments."

The company said the Delta Dayton Airport Customer Service team worked for more than a year to earn it, including these actions:

  • Establishing safety committees to advocate employee involvement through communication and interactive training
  • Creating a process for reporting and addressing hazards and tracking steps taken to eliminate them
  • Testing and updating local action plans and employee training for emergency response, workplace violence, and ergonomics

Other Delta locations with Star status include additional facilities in Atlanta; Augusta, Ga.; Colorado Springs; Columbus, Ohio; Washington, D.C.; Melbourne, Fla.; Jacksonville; Kansas City, Mo.; Ontario, Calif.; and St. Louis. A wholly owned subsidiary, DAL Global Services, has Star sites in Columbus, Colorado Springs, and Jacksonville.
