Nevada celebrates VPP status

Nevada celebrates VPP status

It was a banner day for two NNSA/NNSS contractors as they were re-certified as Star Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP). National Security Technologies (NSTec) and WSI Nevada Team received their certificates and banners from NNSA Nevada Site Manager Stephen A. Mellington. VPP promotes effective worksite-based safety and health. In the VPP, management and labor establish cooperative relationships at the workplace to implement a comprehensive safety and health management system. 

For NSTec this is their fourth Star Certification, which is the highest level under VPP. WSI is in their 11th year of VPP Star Status. 

“Achieving this status demonstrates the willingness of NNSS contractors to collaborate for efficiency and establish continuity. In this case, it is in the areas of worker health and safety,” said Mellington.
