OSHA’s VPP Star certification recognizes organizations that maintain injury and illness rates below the Bureau of Labor Statistic’s national averages for their respective industries through effective safety and health management systems. Just 0.1% of companies across the United States have earned this credential. And now, four of Marvin’s facilities have received this certification.

"Marvin is committed to helping people live better. For our employees, that commitment comes to life through the focus on safety we have made for our manufacturing facilities, our investments in training and safety protocols and through the partners we choose to work with,” said Chris Barta, senior director of operations at Marvin. “We’re proud to have achieved this milestone at another Marvin facility in North Dakota – it’s just one example of the ways we continue to invest in our people."

The West Fargo North manufacturing facility joins Marvin’s three existing VPP Star-certified locations in the area, Fargo, West Fargo South and Marvin Composites (formerly known as Tecton) – to make up four of the 11 total VPP Star-certified facilities in North Dakota. To earn VPP certification, employers must work cooperatively with OSHA and employees to prevent injuries through rigorous systems, testing and evaluations.

“Through our priority to keep our workforce safe, we are also committed to continue our role as a responsible corporate partner and employer in the Fargo community,” said Barta.
