Sometimes we get hung up on letting you know what bad things have happened out there in safety-land, well here is a good thing. Rathdrum Power is receiving its VPP Star award from OSHA, something that they and any other company that has achieved this should be very proud of.

On February 22 The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recognized Rathdrum Power LLC, in Rathdrum, Idaho, for excellence in worker health and safety."This facility has not experienced an injury resulting in lost time in the last four years. This record is a testimony that management and labor working together to implement safety and health management systems pay remarkable dividends," said Richard S. Terrill, OSHA's regional administrator. "Their outstanding efforts have included significant management commitment and employee involvement."
