INVISTA Athens site earns safety designation
US Occupational Safety and Health Administration recertifies Voluntary Protection Program STAR status
INVISTA’s Athens site has once again earned the highest designation under the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) – STAR status. INVISTA, which was first certified in 2012, is one of only three VPP STAR sites in Athens, Ga.
“This designation represents our employees’ on-going dedication to safety, and we congratulate them on this achievement,” said Shauna Devereux, INVISTA Athens site manager. “Every day, we strive for 10,000 percent compliance, which means 100 percent of our employees comply with safety requirements and regulations 100 percent of the time. We’re proud this hard work and diligence is recognized by the VPP STAR facility recertification.”
OSHA awarded the VPP STAR recertification to the Athens site after a thorough third-party audit of the site’s safety and health programs, operations performance and safety record.
“INVISTA has been recertified as a VPP site as a result of making safety its top priority,” said William C. Fulcher, area director for the U.S. Department of Labor, OSHA’s Atlanta-East Area Office. “This site has an injury [total recordable] rate 39 percent lower than the average plant that does the same thing. As a result of strong management leadership and employee involvement, the facility continues to protect workers and provide a good place to work.”
INVISTA’s Athens site is a yarn processor that supports flooring brands including STAINMASTER® and ANTRON®.
