PNNL receives award for safety systems


Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is receiving its third Voluntary Protection Program Star Award from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

It's the only Department of Energy science laboratory to have earned star status, the highest rankling in the Voluntary Protection Program.

The program recognizes businesses and organizations that implement safety and health management systems and maintain injury and illness rates below national Bureau of Labor Statistics averages.

"When you see the VPP star flying at PNNL, take pride in the fact that you contribute to a work culture that places a premium on personal safety," said PNNL director Mike Kluse in a message to staff.
