The employees and management of NuStar Energy-Central East Region (Kansas District) in Wichita have been recognized by OSHA for excellence in the company’s employee safety and health program.
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration honored NuStar Energy’s facility with a “star” designation, the highest honor in OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Programs.
NuStar Energy earned the designation following a comprehensive on-site evaluation by a team of OSHA safety and health experts, according to a release from the federal agency. The petroleum pipeline company employs about 70 workers at the facility.
The Voluntary Protection Programs recognize private and federal work sites with effective safety and health management systems that have maintained injury and illness rates below national Bureau of Labor Statistics averages.
