Huntsman Corp. recently announced that the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) has given its Auburn Hills, Mich., site continued status as a “Star” participant in the Michigan Voluntary Protection Program (MVPP), reportedly keeping the status the site has maintained since 2004.

The “Star” review process begins with a pre-audit outlining the site’s current safety program. MIOSHA then sends representatives to the site over a three-day period to review the pre-audit, tour the facility and conduct interviews with company employees.

“This recognition exemplifies the result of successful efforts by all associates, and government, in partnering for excellence in workplace safety and health,” said Pete Panourgias, Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) manager at the site.
