’s Electronic Systems facility in Rolling Meadows, IL, has been awarded the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) prestigious STAR award re-certification yesterday in recognition of the company's exemplary occupational safety and health program. The STAR award represents the highest levels of recognition available through OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program. To earn the STAR designation, a facility must have an accident rate that is below that of their industry and demonstrate, through an onsite audit, that its safety and health programs and practices attain high levels of excellence. This achievement is especially significant for an organization with a large workforce, such as Northrop Grumman
's Rolling Meadows facility, which employs more than 2,500. OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program recognizes and partners with businesses and worksites that demonstrate excellence in occupational safety and health. The STAR designation is designed for exemplary worksites with comprehensive, successful safety and health management systems that provide effective employee protection beyond the requirements of OSHA standards.
