A refinery testing team in Montana was recognized for its health and safety excellence.
According to a press release, OSHA designated Team Inc. of Billings, Montana, a “star” employer. The company was awarded the “star” status in the Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP).
The Billings location employs 22 workers. Across the U.S., Team Inc employs 6,800 workers. Team Inc has four other “star” sites.
The VPP recognizes employers for their work on “safety and health management systems” and few injury and illness reports. The “star” status is the highest recognition of health and safety from OSHA.
"OSHA commends Team Inc.'s employees for their commitment to workplace safety and health, and for meeting the rigorous requirements of our Voluntary Protection Programs," said OSHA Regional Director Jennifer Rous in Denver in the press release. "By recognizing the significant hazards refineries present, Team Inc.'s efforts to achieve VPP Star designation demonstrate their dedication to the safety of their employees, their host site Phillips 66, and to the Billings community."
