OSHA Gives Power Resources Limited Star Safety Award

OSHA Gives Power Resources Limited Star Safety Award
The regulatory agency of the United States, OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) is mostly known for its ferocity, unforgivable nature, hefty penalties and strict workplace safety standards and regulations. But recently, OSHA handed over the Star Safety Award to the Big Spring Company. Indeed! This regulatory body does have a lighter side.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is very familiar with handing out fines and citations to organizations with poor safety records. But, in a shocking turn of events, a Big Spring Company managed to bag the Star Safety Award for having a great safety record.

Power Resources Limited was primarily recognized for having three years of excellence in employee safety and health and for completing OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program.

Jerry Barker, the General Manager, said that they had worked with a mentor in order to help them recognize any potential safety hazards. They then applied to be in the program. Finally, OSHA sent some of its representatives who spent nearly three days prodding and poking, looking out for any violations.

Baker went on to say that, "We've taken our program to the next level. We've increased the focus on safety all because of really the employees make it happen."

Power Resources Limited produces electricity and then sells it to other companies.
