Olin Chlor Alkali Products and Vinyls in Charleston has been chosen to receive the Volunteer STAR Award.
The award name stands for Safety Through Accountability and Recognition.
The announcement was made recently in Nashville by Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development Commissioner Burns Phillips.
"Olin Chlor Alkali and Vinyls has met the evaluations standards required to receive this award by proving their ability to uphold an excellent safety record," Phillips said. "It is evident that Olin is extremely dedicated to maintaining a safe and healthy workplace."
TOSHA Assistant Commissioner Steve Hawkins presented the award to Olin management and employees at the company's facility on Lower River Road. This is the fourth time TOSHA has honored the site with the award.
The Volunteer STAR Award is the state's highest honor for workplace safety and health and a nationally recognized program. It is patterned after the OSHA Voluntary Protection Program and recognizes the best of the best in the area of safety and health programming and performance.
"We are very proud to be recognized as a STAR Site since 2002," said Olin Plant Manager Chris Anziano. "This award is a direct reflection of the dedication and commitment each site employee has to working safely every day. The safety of our employees, our community and the environment is always a top priority for Olin."
Olin manufactures chlorine, sodium hydroxide and other alkalis using an electrolysis process. The company has 278 employees at its Charleston facility.
The standard for participation in the STAR program is the confirmation of a company's safety and health program, which helps reduce accidents and injuries. The program also allows employers to be removed from programmed compliance inspection lists for a period of three years.
