Grace’s Tyrone, PA Site Approved for Continued STAR Participation in OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Programmes (VPP)

WR Grace & Co, a global leader in speciality silica and fine chemicals, received approval for its continued STAR participation in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) for its Tyrone, Pennsylvania site.

Grace’s Tyrone, PA site has maintained its status as a STAR participant for 14 years, having first received entry into the programme in 2008. The location is part of Grace’s Fine Chemical Manufacturing Services (FCMS) network of three US sites. The facility is a full-scale manufacturing site, including R&D laboratories and a pilot plant.

OSHA’s VPP programs recognise employers and workers in the private industry who have implemented effective safety and health management systems and maintain injury and illness rates below national Bureau of Labor Statistics averages for their respective industries. To participate, employers must undergo a significant onsite evaluation by a team of safety and health professionals.

“Safety is our number one priority at Grace. To be a STAR participant for 14 years is an incredible achievement,” said Sandra Wisniewski, president of Grace Materials Technologies. “Our employees and customers alike should feel proud of this recognition, particularly in an industry where safety and compliance are critical.”

Scott Martin, general manager of Grace FCMS, added: “To be a leading CDMO, you need to lead. Grace’s FCMS leads with safety, and we are deeply proud of our 14-year standing and committed to continued participation in this programme.”
