Today, the Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH) Consultation Department presented Loven Contracting, Inc.’s Verde Valley Medical Center Hospice House site, a “STAR Site” through the Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). This marks the 35th site and only the 4th construction company in Arizona to receive STAR designation by ADOSH.
“The Verde Valley Medical Center Hospice House project is an excellent example of a safe working environment,” said Jessie Atencio, assistant director and consultation and training program manager for ADOSH. “Their team should be proud of the safe working environment that is part of the culture.”
VPP is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) highest program of recognition across all United States OSHA organizations. It recognizes employers and workers in private and federal workplaces who have exemplified effective safety and health management systems to achieve injury and illness rates more than 50 percent below the national average.
