Hendrickson’s Bumper and Trim facility has been recognized as a Star site, the highest recognition within the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Voluntary Protection Program (VPP).
OSHA’s team performed a comprehensive audit of the facility in June 2010, including a thorough review of the facilities management leadership practices, employee involvement, work site analysis, hazard and prevention control and safety and health training.
Noteworthy findings include:
• Excellent Housekeeping
• Active Employee Involvement
• Comprehensive Wellness program
• Engineering controls exceeding OSHA requirements
• Utilization of a comprehensive software program designed to track and evaluate accidents, near misses, recordable incidents and training.
Entrance into VPP has placed Hendrickson Bumper and Trim into an elite group of organizations that provide exemplary occupational safety and health protection. Hendrickson Bumper and Trim is the first facility in the nation to be approved into this program with an NAICS code of 336370.
A formal presentation ceremony is planned for May 13 where OSHA’s Regional Director and members of OSHA’s audit team will present the VPP plaque to Hendrickson.
