BP Site's AKOSH VPP Star Renewed

As a VPP Star recipient, BP Exploration Alaska's Central Power Station won't be subject to random enforcement inspections for a period of five years.

Alaska Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Heidi Drygas recently renewed approval of BP Exploration Alaska's Central Power Station for the Alaska Occupational Safety and Health (AKOSH) Voluntary Protection Program at the Star level, the highest achievable, for its outstanding employee safety and health programs.

"Central Power Station has been in the program since 1999. At CPS, employees believe in the power of a team to go above and beyond. Recertification of VPP is evidence of BP Exploration Alaska's exemplary occupational safety and health program," said BP Exploration Alaska Industrial Hygienist Beatrice Egbejimba. "The VPP program is an opportunity to partner with AKOSH while showcasing and enhancing our safety and health culture. VPP supports BP Exploration Alaska's culture of caring and empowers employees to share this culture with family and friends outside of the workplace."

"Participating in the Voluntary Protection Program illustrates an employer's steadfast commitment to worker safety," Drygas said Sept. 5. "I applaud BP Exploration Alaska's Central Power Station employees for their efforts in managing and maintaining occupational safety and health."

As a VPP Star recipient, BP Exploration Alaska's Central Power Station won't be subject to random enforcement inspections for a period of five years. But enforcement regulations remain in effect, and cases of employee complaints, accident investigations, or other significant incidents will result in an enforcement inspection.

Currently there are nine sites in Alaska with the AKOSH VPP Star designation.
