Texas power plant recognized by OSHA for safety and health excellence

Texas power plant recognized by OSHA for safety and health excellence
Every day, you hear OSHA citing a couple of companies for violating some of their regulations. But, awarding penalties is not the only job they do. OSHA also recognizes those companies who demonstrate excellence in effective safety and health management. For example, Power Resources Ltd. in Big Spring, Texas has earned a place in the Voluntary Protection Programs of the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration. They have achieved this recognition for maintaining the highest level of safety and health excellence for three years.

William A. Burke, OSHA's acting regional administrator in Dallas, said that the company's outstanding efforts in maintaining excellence in effective safety and health management has led to zero injuries and illnesses over the past three years.

Power Resources Ltd. is a natural gas fueled facility at Howard County, Texas. There are about 19 employees performing functions that include accounting, operations, purchasing, plant maintenance and compliance. The plant was built in the 1980s and achieved commercial operation 7 years later.

OSHA’s recognition programs included the VVP for both employers and employees, for their outstanding performance in implementing exemplary work safety and health management systems.
