Jasper’s Remanufacturing Facility Earns VPP Star Safety Certification Extension

The Indiana Department of Labor has granted a three-year extension of the Star Certification of Jasper Engines and Transmissions’ Jasper, Indiana, remanufacturing facility in Indiana’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP).

The Indiana Department of Labor has granted a three-year extension of the Star Certification of Jasper Engines and Transmissions’ Jasper, Indiana, remanufacturing facility in Indiana’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). The Wernsing Road remanufacturing facility in Jasper, Indiana, earned its initial Merit Safety Certification in 2008; ultimately achieving Star Safety Certification in April 2012.

VPP was established to recognize and promote safety and health management programs throughout the state. All companies, regardless of size or business, can participate in VPP – where management and employees work together to create and maintain a healthy working environment.

“Please accept my hearty congratulations on your sustained excellence in all aspects of workplace safety and health,” said Rick Ruble, Indiana Department of Labor’s Commissioner of Labor. “Your re-approval to VPP is a strong endorsement of the continued dedication to workplace safety and health demonstrated by you and your Associates at JASPER. As a participant in the VPP, you hold a position as an industry leader in workplace safety and health and serve as a model for what a safety and health management system can be.”

JASPER Safety Director, Jason Pieper, said VPP is all about Management Commitment and Associate involvement. “I want to thank our Executive team, our Managers and our Leaders that do a great job supporting our safety programs,” he said. “Earning, and keeping, Star Certification is where we want to be, as a company, in our continuing safety journey.”

JASPER’s remanufacturing facility in Crawford County, Indiana, achieved VPP Merit Certification in September, 2010, and earned its Star Safety Certification in August 2013. Pieper added, “The goal of VPP Certification of our Drivetrain Remanufacturing facility (Power Drive) begins in 2016.”
