West Fargo Door Manufacturer Earns OSHA ‘Star Level Designation’ for Exemplary Workplace Safety, Health Programs

February 8th, 2022 by Editor

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has granted door manufacturer Marvin’s West Fargo, N.D. facility a “Star Level Designation” in its Voluntary Protection Program.

In an OSHA news release issued yesterday, the organization said that Marvin employees, of which there are about 200 at the West Fargo site, use hand and power tools to fabricate parts and assemble the materials into custom wood patio doors and windows. Ergonomic controls such as lift, turn and rotate tables are used in the plant’s manufacturing processes, which played a role in the company earning recognition for its proactive safety and health programs leading to designation as a Star Level VPP.

“The site has an exceptional orientation and training program that includes a weeklong training process at a hands-on onsite learning lab where work hardening, tool safety, and ergonomics are a focus of this program,” said OSHA Regional Administrator Jennifer Rous in Denver. “Designation as a Star Level in the Voluntary Protection Program is the highest safety achievement a company can earn from OSHA.”
