The wood products manufacturing plant redesignates the “Star” site

Huber Engineered Woods LLC was renamed a “star” site after an assessment in April 2022.

A Maine company that manufactures wood products has been redesignated a “star level” site under OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP).

Huber Engineered Woods LLC had its designation renewed following an assessment in April 2022. At the Easton, Maine site, approximately 135 workers fabricate “oriented strand board for commercial and residential construction,” according to a Press release. It was named a “star” site for the first time in 2019.

“The level of occupational safety and health for this Maine wood products manufacturing facility is commendable,” OSHA Regional Administrator Galen Blanton in Boston said in the news release. “Site management supports employee involvement in all aspects of a comprehensive safety and health management system and strives to eliminate industry hazards such as fire, combustible dust and accidental events.”

The VPP recognizes companies that have excellent health and safety systems, according to its website. Currentlythere are 1,994 federal and state sites in OSHA’s VPP.
