The Arizona Division of Occupational Safety and Health (ADOSH) Consultation Department recently recertified Insulfoam of Arizona with top safety designation, a “STAR Site” through the state’s Voluntary Protection Program “VPP.” 

VPP is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) highest program of safety 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.

“Insulfoam of Arizona has created an environment that is dedicated to safety,” said Jessie Atencio, assistant director and consultation and training program manager for ADOSH. “Their team should be proud of the culture that has been created to ensure a safe working environment to achieve this recertification.”

To qualify for VPP status, employers must submit an application to OSHA and undergo an onsite evaluation by a team of safety and health professionals. VPP participants and sites earning the “STAR Site” designation are re-evaluated every three to five years in order to remain in the programs. VPP participants are exempt from OSHA programmed inspections while they maintain their VPP status.
