Colorado Site Recognized With “Star” Status Under VPP

Onward Energy has two other locations in the Voluntary Protections Program.

A Colorado site was recently recognized for its excellence in worker health and safety.

OSHA designated Onward Energy, SWG Arapahoe LLC’s Denver, Colorado site a “star” location, according to the press release. This status falls under the Voluntary Protections Program (VPP). Onward Energy has two other sites under the VPP.

“Employee engagement is a fundamental requirement of the OSHA Voluntary Protection Program, and the Onward Energy employee safety and health training program and plant safety expert program are excellent examples of the value of employee involvement, empowerment, and ownership. We are happy to recognize another Onward Energy site with a VPP Star,” said OSHA Regional Administrator Jennifer Rous in Denver in the press release.

The “star” status is the highest level of recognition under the VPP, which recognizes employers for their work on “safety and health management systems” and few injury and illness reports.
