Herman Miller Facility's MVPP Star Renewed

Michigan OSHA announced the renewal March 13.

The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health dministration has renewed the MVPP Star Award, the state's highest workplace safety and health award, of Herman Miller's 171st Facility in Spring Lake, Mich.

"MVPP status is rare in Michigan -- it is a rigorous process that takes commitment. This is the second Herman Miller facility to have their MVPP status renewed this year, which is very commendable," said MIOSHA Director Martha Yoder. "Herman Miller's long-time commitment to workplace safety and health sends a strong message to other Michigan companies. Herman Miller's record shows that a safe workplace provides the foundation for a productive workplace."

MIOSHA established the Michigan Voluntary Protection Program (MVPP) program in 1996 to recognize employers actively working toward achieving excellence in workplace safety and health. Since 1999, Michigan has recognized 29 MVPP Star companies; the 171st Facility has had MVPP Star approval since July 21, 2006, and it was recertified in 2009.

Its incidence rate and lost work day rate are well below the Michigan average for their NAICS code 337214 - Office Furniture (Except Wood) Manufacturing, with a total case incidence rate of 1.1 in 2009, 3.0 in 2010, and 4.0 in 2011, compared to the Bureau of Labor Statistics industry average of 3.6 in 2009, 3.8 in 2010, and in 3.6 in 2011. The total days away/restricted cases (DART) rate was 0.0 in 2009, 1.0 in 2010, and 2.0 in 2011, compared to the BLS industry average of 3.6 in 2009, 3.8 in 2010, and in 3.6 in 2011. The 171st Facility employs 775 employees who manufacture many of the company's metal storage products, according to MIOSHA.
