One site in Massachusetts is retaining its status as a “star” site.
According to a press release, Veolia ES Technical Solutions LLC of Charlestown, Massachusetts, was recognized by OSHA in the Voluntary Protections Program (VPP). The “star” status, first awarded in 2019, was renewed after an inspection in February this year.
“The level of workplace safety and health practiced by this recent participant is commendable,” said OSHA Regional Administrator Galen Blanton in Boston in the press release. “Site leadership supports all aspects of a comprehensive safety and health management system and involves employees in OSHA initiatives such as the annual Fall Stand Down and Safe & Sound Week events.”
Veolia ES Technical Solutions LLC provides hazardous waste handling and environmental services to the northeast U.S., per the press release. The company employs about 65 workers.
The “star” status is the highest level of recognition under the VPP, which recognizes employers for their achievements in worker health and safety.
