On June 19, 2018, OSHA Regional Administrator Eric Harbin visited AMVAC Marsing to recognize the plant as an OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star Worksite, the highest level of achievement in the VPP program. Marsing recertified its VPP Star status, which has been achieved since 2003 via a rigorous application and on-site evaluation process, and is one of only 14 worksites in Idaho to achieve Star status.
VPP Star status is “OSHA’s official recognition of outstanding efforts of employers and employees who demonstrate exemplary achievement in the prevention and control of occupational safety and health hazards, and the development, implementation and continuous improvement of their safety and health management system.”
Plant Manager Dennis Achey stated, “We thank OSHA for recognizing Marsing employees’ commitment to safety. This achievement would not have been possible without the dedication and effort of every Marsing employee, especially as our production has increased by 20% over the past year.”
