The U.S. Department of Labor has recognized four Hypertherm facilities as OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star worksites.
The program recognizes workplaces for operating outstanding safety and health management systems for employee protection. These worksites are self-sufficient in identifying and controlling workplace hazards. To be recognized as a VPP Star worksite, an employer must operate a comprehensive safety and health management system that is integrated into a worksite’s operations.
The four facilities join two other worksites that received the recognition two years ago.
Hypertherm, Lebanon, N.H., designs and manufactures hand-held and mechanized plasma systems and consumables, fiber laser and waterjet products, CNC motion and height controls, and CAM cutting software.
