Voluntary Protection Programs

NuStar is taking its commitment to safety to the next level by working to have all of our facilities designated as Star Worksites in the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). OSHA started VPP to establish cooperative action among government, industry and labor in promoting highly effective safety and health programs that go above and beyond normal OSHA worker protection compliance. While VPP is a voluntary program, it involves a rigorous and complex process designed to ensure that only the best programs qualify and are certified as Star Worksites.
