At a recent Region VIII VPP Participants Association Networking Event in Westminster, Colorado, the Phillips 66 Bulk Petroleum Storage Facility and Terminal in Casper, Wyoming was recognized for 10 years of continuous participation in OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program.

OSHA in Denver is recognizing the Casper site for its achievement in reaching this milestone.

Voluntary Protection Program: An Official OSHA Recognition

OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Programs recognize and promote effective worksite-based safety and health management systems. In the VPP, management, labor and OSHA establish cooperative relationships at workplaces that use comprehensive safety and health management systems.

VPP designation is OSHA’s official recognition of the outstanding efforts of employers and employees who have created exemplary worksite safety and health management systems.

OSHA Regional Administrator Jennifer S. Rous said that “ten years of continuous participation in the OSHA Voluntary Protections Program is a tremendous

accomplishment. The employees and managers of Phillips 66 in Casper should be quite proud. They are a model for safety excellence in our region.”

Wyoming OSHA Deputy Administrator Karen Bebensee noted the Phillips site for the consistency in “handling unique situations and hazards by combining an incredibly strong work ethic, communication and passion for the safety and health of employees and contractors. The site sets an extraordinarily high standard by continuously earning its VPP STAR award status with superior injury and illness rates’.
