Air Force Unit Earns Rare Safety Honor

A second unit at Robins Air Force Base has been awarded the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's highest award for safety.

According to a release, the 402nd Maintenance Support Group has been named a Star Site, the top designation in OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program. The unit is also the first industrial site in Air Force Materiel Command to win the honor.

The unit is responsible for planning, designing, installing, modifying, maintaining and repairing ground support equipment. It also does facilities maintenance, builds and issues toolboxes and kits, conducts environmental lab testing, and manages the complex's energy program.

In 2009, the 402nd Software Maintenance Group became the first unit at Robins to be named a Star Site.

"This achievement is a result of teamwork and partnership throughout the entire workforce," Russ Mills, the support group's operations flight chief and Voluntary Protection Program manager, said in the release. "We're not only excited about this accomplishment but the future challenges that come with sustaining and improving the Star status."
