Milliken Headquarters Receives OSHA Recognition

The Roger Milliken Center, Spartanburg, S.C.-based MillikenandCompanys corporate headquarters, has become the companys 46th VPP STAR Site. The designation is awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) through the S.C. Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation, Palmetto VPP. The VPP program recognizes companies that surpass normal safety requirements to meet and exceed OSHA standards. Since Milliken began participating in the program in 1992, 45 of its manufacturing locations have been given the VPP STAR Site designation.This is tremendous recognition, said Roger Milliken, chairman and CEO. It is a tribute to every associate in our company, because every associate knows that they have ownership of the safety process. [VPP] is not a management program.The VPP program has been tremendously successful in helping our company establish an uncompromising safety and health process, said Richard Dillard, director, public affairs, Milliken and Co. What better gift can you give your associates and the community, than a safe working environmentMilliken has the most VPP STAR sites of any company in South Carolina (28 of a total of 35) and also tops the list in every other state where it operates, according to Wayne Punch, director, safety and health. It is second nationwide only to International Paper.Janet Nixon, Palmetto STAR VPP coordinator, points to Milliken when other companies complain that the VPP standards are set too high. [Millikens] record speaks for itself, she said. They are one of our strongest advocates for the program.Remarking on the attainment of VPP STAR Site status for the companys headquarters, Punch said, It has been quite a challenge. This is our largest facility, and that just makes success that much sweeter.
