LAS VEGAS – National Security Technologies, the management and operating contractor for the Nevada National Security Site, continues to conduct some of the nation’s most important national security work in the safest manner possible as recognized by consecutive safety awards from the U.S. Department of Energy.
The DOE each year recognizes safety at its locations across the United States through its Voluntary Protection Program, which was created in January 1994 to recognize and encourage excellence in occupational safety and health protection. The program closely parallels the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration VPP.
In February 2015, the company participated in a two-week recertification review as required, and in August 2015 it was announced that NSTec has again been awarded the VPP Superior Star for the fifth consecutive year.
