Asphalt Plant in Colorado Designated “Star” Site Under VPP

Owens Corning has 15 other locations with the same recognition.

An asphalt plant in Colorado has been recognized as a “star” site under OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP).

Owens Corning received the renewal of the status in August of this year, according to an OSHA news release. This specific site is located in Denver, Colorado.

Owens Corning has 15 other sites with “star” statuses under the VPP and received its first status in 2009.

"Owens Corning has committed leaders dedicated to safety and health excellence at every level of this worksite. Employee engagement is a fundamental requirement of the OSHA Voluntary Protection Program, and this site is an outstanding example of involvement, empowerment, and ownership at the employee level. We are happy to recognize Owens Corning with a VPP Star," said OSHA Regional Administrator Jennifer Rous in Denver in the news release.

The VPP recognizes companies that have excellent health and safety systems, according to its website. Currently, there are 2,000 federal and state-plan sites in OSHA’s VPP.
