Schneider Electric USA has received “star” site recognition from OSHA for its exemplary workplace safety and health program.

The Lincoln, Nebraska company, which manufactures miniature circuit breakers, earned the honor following a comprehensive on-site evaluation by a team of OSHA safety and health experts. More than 250 workers are employed at the Lincoln facility.

"From the top down, Schneider Electric USA has displayed outstanding effort in implementing a comprehensive safety and health management system," said Charles E. Adkins, OSHA's regional administrator in Kansas City, Mo. "The company is an exemplar of workplace safety."

The Voluntary Protection Programs recognize employers and workers in private industry and federal agencies that have implemented effective safety and health management systems, and maintain injury and illness rates below national Bureau of Labor Statistics averages for their respective industries. In the VPP, management, labor and OSHA work cooperatively and proactively to prevent fatalities, injuries and illnesses through a system focused on hazard prevention and control, worksite analysis, training, management commitment and worker involvement.
