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.

The Walsh Group is a commercial construction management company with about 23 employees employed in Washington, Oregon and Idaho.
