The Carolina Star Program is designed to recognize and promote effective workplace safety and health management systems. The Carolina Star status is equivalent to the federal government’s OSHA VPP award and is awarded to workplaces that demonstrate self-sufficiency in their ability to control hazards at their sites.

Mike McCann, vice president and general manager for OPW’s Retail Fueling business said, “The Smithfield employees have put hard work and dedication into creating a safe and healthy manufacturing environment. I am proud of our employees and the time they spent to make this a great place to come to work each day.”

Several North Carolina state dignitaries attended the event held at OPW’s Smithfield facility, including North Carolina Commissioner of Labor Cherie Berry who spoke at the event.

“I am so proud of OPW and the safety culture the employees have developed in their company through the voluntary Carolina Star program,” said Berry. “Congratulations! Well done!”
