Georgia worksite earns VPP Star

The Brunswick, GA, Post Office is the first facility in the South Georgia District to earn the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) highest safety honor — Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) Star status.

OSHA representative John Deifer presented the VPP Star flag to Brunswick Post Office employees at a recent celebration ceremony.

OSHA has honored the worksite’s safety practices before. Last year, they awarded the facility with its Best Practices Award after management changed the plastic wheels on all of its in-house hampers to rubber wheels. The improvements made it easier for employees to push the containers and reduced muscular and back hazards.
