Another McWane VPP Site!

We are pleased to announce that after almost a year of waiting, McWane Ductile located in Phillipsburg, New Jersey (MDNJ) received their official notification that they have been approved for VPP Merit status.  Their extensive and comprehensive on-site evaluation by a team of five OSHA personnel and one external Special Government Employee was held June 5-9, 2017.

They have been asked to perform additional industrial hygiene monitoring for non-routine and off-shift tasks (the only issue identified by the entire OSHA team).  Once that is complete, they will be able to apply for the Star designation.

McWane Vice-President of Health & Safety Barb Wisniewski said, “It is very fitting that this announcement tops off an outstanding year for MDNJ’s health and safety success, i.e., winner of the 2017 McWane Top Quartile Club Award and the 2017 McWane EHS Excellence (Screaming Eagle) Award.  You should be extremely proud—very well deserved!”

MDNJ joins six other McWane facilities that had been recognized as VPP sites.  In fact, all three McWane Ductile locations are now VPP sites (McWane Ductile Ohio-VPP Star, McWane Ductile-Utah-VPP Star and MDNJ-VPP Merit).

Congratulations to everyone at MDNJ!
