The Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration (TOSHA) division of the Department of Labor and Workforce Development (TDLWD) has recognized John Deere Power Products in Greeneville with its Volunteer Safety Through Accountability and Recognition (STAR) Award.
The Volunteer STAR Award is the state’s highest honor for workplace safety and health and is a nationally recognized program patterned after the OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). Because the company has received the award, its Greeneville facility is considered a Volunteer STAR site.
TOSHA Assistant Commissioner Wendy Fisher traveled to the Greeneville site on November 16 to present the Volunteer STAR Award to John Deere’s managers and employees. This is the fifth time TOSHA has honored John Deere with the Volunteer STAR award.
There are currently 33 Volunteer STAR sites in Tennessee.
