Pennsylvania Brick Manufacturer Awarded for Workplace Safety Excellence

Print Article Contributed by FSM Staff

SHOEMAKERSVILLE, PA -- The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has certified Glen-Gery Brick’s Mid-Atlantic Plant as a “Star” worksite in the Agency’s Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP), the highest level of recognition for workplace safety and health excellence.

Over the past three years, the Shoemakersville brick manufacturer recorded an injury and illness rate 21 percent below the industry’s national average.

“Glen-Gery Brick has demonstrated a commitment to protecting its employees by maintaining a comprehensive and effective workplace safety and health program,” said Michael Rivera, Acting OSHA Regional Administrator.

VPP recognizes employers who have implemented effective safety and health management systems, and that maintain injury and illness rates below national averages. VPP represents management, labor, and OSHA working together to prevent fatalities, injuries, and illnesses through hazard prevention and control, worksite analysis, training, management commitment, and worker involvement.
