CHEYENNE – This week, the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services’ (DWS) Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) honored the Molson Coors Worland facility with the Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star Status for its commitment to safety during a recognition ceremony in Worland.

“The Voluntary Protection Program is one of OSHA’s top recognitions for business and government entities with outstanding safety and health programs,” said Wyoming OSHA Program Manager Karen Godman. “Molson Coors began their VPP journey in 2006, and their continued commitment to the health and safety of its employees has become a model of excellence. Several Molson Coors worksites have been awarded VPP Star Status, and I applaud the company for its continued commitment to safety.”

The Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) is designed to recognize and promote effective workplace safety and health processes, in which management, labor and OSHA establish a cooperative relationship at a work site that has implemented a strong, comprehensive safety and health system. Star participants, who meet all required elements within the VPP program, are at the top of the VPP recognition ladder, demonstrating exemplary achievement in the prevention and control of occupational safety and health hazards and the development, implementation and continuous improvement of their safety and health management system.

Molson Coors currently operates and maintains six barley elevators employing approximately 34 employees across Wyoming, Montana, Colorado and Idaho. All six barley elevators have been awarded the STAR VPP program distinction and two have been awarded OSHA’s Decade of Excellence.
