MCLB Albany recently became the DoD's Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Achievement Awardee for installations. OSHA’s VPP  recognizes private industry and federal agencies who have achieved an elite level of safety and health management while maintaining injury and illness rates below national averages. To achieve Star recognition a site must exceed OSHA standards, submit a VPP application that generally reflects a 5-7 year effort, and undergo a rigorous onsite evaluation by a team of OSHA professionals.  MCAS Beaufort started the VPP process in March of 2009 and was recognized in Nov of 2016 by OSHA as a “Star Performer” within the VPP program. The Star Site recognition officially took place this year.
