This mobile worksite recognition is part of a selection of workplaces that have exceeded occupational safety and health standards and demonstrated commitment to putting the wellbeing of Hoosier workers first, the state agency said in a news release.
The STAR status is a unique part of the Voluntary Protection Program which provides recognition to Indiana employers that operate exemplary safety and health management systems. Certification in VPP is an achievement that identifies employers that serve as model worksites for Hoosier workplace safety and health, the news release says.
“It’s very easy for a company to claim that there are too many employees and subcontractors and not enough time to train them, — but not BMWC,” said IDOL Commissioner Rick J. Ruble. “The management and employees at BMWC are role models for investing in and protecting their workers.”
