Springs Hartwell Finishing Achieves Top Safety Honor

Springs Industries Hartwell Finishing facility, Hartwell, Ga., has received a Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) flag for excellence in safety performance. This is the first VPP flag to fly at a Springs Industries facility. Hartwell Finishing completed a rigorous process to qualify for the VPP, which is administered by the U.S. Department of Labors Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The VPP process relies on cooperative efforts of facility management, labor and government to monitor, measure and improve workplace safety.On average, VPP sites experience about half as many injuries as their industry counterparts. About 650 workplace locations in the United States are currently recognized as VPP sites.
