OSHA announced it has certified MI Windows and Doors' manufacturing facility in Gratz, Pa., as a Star work site. Star is OSHA’s highest level of VPP recognition for workplace health and safety excellence.

The company's certification into OSHA's Voluntary Protection Programs recognizes MI Windows and Doors' commitment to safety and health in the workplace. MI Windows and Doors, which produces new construction and replacement windows for businesses and homes, recorded an injury and illness rate 54 percent below the national average in the last three years.

"MI Windows and Doors has demonstrated a comprehensive and effective workplace safety and health program at its facility," said Michael Rivera, Acting OSHA Regional Administrator.
