Seattle Company Given “Star” Recognition for Workplace Safety

OSHA certified the construction company in the Voluntary Protection Program.

A Seattle-based company is being recognized for their success in workplace safety.

According to a press release, OSHA designated a “Star” status to the Walsh Group for its commitment to health and safety. OSHA Acting Regional Administrator Christopher Adams in Seattle said in a press release, “The company’s commitment to employee and management engagement – including participation of leadership in meetings focusing on safety and health for all trades and project activities, and extensive job safety and hazard analyses – is exceptional.”

The certification falls under OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP), the highest level of health and safety recognition. Their recertification came while working at an air base in Washington.
