MANUFACTURING SCIENCES CORPORATION RECERTIFIED FOR WORKPLACE SAFETY
COMPANY EARNS THIRD RECOGNITION
NASHVILLE - Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Commissioner James Neeley announced that Manufacturing Sciences Corporation in Oak Ridge has earned recertification for the Volunteer STAR (Safety Through Accountability and Recognition) award. The Volunteer STAR award is the state’s highest honor for workplace safety and health and a nationally recognized program.
“Manufacturing Sciences Corporation originally received STAR certification in January 2000,” said Deputy Commissioner Bob Henningsen, who presented the award today at the company’s facility at 804 S. Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge.
“Manufacturing Sciences was recertified in June 2003 and again this past June. This presentation is in recognition of the June 2006 recertification. The recertifications show Manufacturing Sciences has a strong, consistent commitment to workplace safety.”
A certificate of recognition is awarded to the STAR recipient, as is a flag that can be flown at the site. The company is also permitted to use the Volunteer STAR logo on its correspondence and company documents.
The standard for participation in the STAR program is the confirmation of a company’s safety and health program, which helps reduce accidents and injuries. The program also allows employers to be removed from programmed compliance inspection lists for a period of three years.
MSC manufactures various products from depleted uranium for medical, military, and other applications.
