NNS Receives Top Notch Rating

Thursday, July 13, 2000
Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) has received the U.S. Government's highest rating for excellence in workplace health and safety. Federal Authorities from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) awarded NNS on June 26 with re-certification at the Star level of OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). OSHA grants this specific achievement to those companies with comprehensive, successful safety and health programs that promote employee protection while demonstrating continuous improvement.

The shipyard first received the Star rating in 1995. Star VPP plants are revisited by OHSA every three to five years to verify the site is still in compliance with the VPP Star Standard.
