11/15/2013 - ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- The 402nd Maintenance Support Group will be presented with a Star flag and plaque today in recognition of its designation as an OSHA Voluntary Protection Program Star Site.
The ceremony will take place at 2 p.m. in Bldg. 321 - its warehouse worksite.
William Fulcher, area director for OSHA's Atlanta East Area Office, will make the presentation.
The 402nd MXSG is the first industrial site in Air Force Materiel Command to achieve the classification.
The unit provides a wide range of industrial and engineering services for maintenance production groups in the Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex.
Those services include designing, installing, modifying, and maintaining and repairing ground support equipment; facilities maintenance; building and issuing tool boxes and kits; performing material, chemical and environmental laboratory testing and analysis; and managing the complex's energy program.
The installation now has two OSHA VPP Star Sites. The 402nd Software Maintenance Group became a Star Site in 2009.
VPP builds on safety and occupational health programs already in place to help reduce workplace mishaps and improve employees' overall well-being.
