The Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant received official approval for continued participation in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Voluntary Protection Program.
“Thank you to all of the employees and managers at PCAPP for their continued commitment to employee safety and health excellence and the VPP,” said Brad Baptiste, VPP manager, OSHA Region VIII. “This is a very noteworthy achievement and we look forward to many more years of continued partnership.”
The highest level of certification, called Star status, is the official recognition of employer and employee efforts to maintain high standards of occupational safety and health.
“Continuous process improvement is the best way to maintain OSHA Star status,” said Shelly Ettel, VPP chair, PCAPP. “Over the course of the year, employees dedicated countless hours of hard work to obtain Star status, but the work is never complete.”
PCAPP achieved the high marks for operations in December 2018. Previously, PCAPP was awarded the status for construction in 2009, recertified in 2011, and for systemization and operations in 2015.
