R. R. Donnelley & Sons Company (Nasdaq:RRD) announced today that its Lynchburg, Va. facility has been recertified to Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star Status by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA). VPP certification is attained only after an organization undergoes a rigorous onsite evaluation conducted by a team of health and safety professionals. Star Status certification is the highest certification level granted by OSHA. RR Donnelley maintains five OSHA VPP Star Status-certified facilities. Achievement of VPP certification requires employees, management, and OSHA to work cooperatively and proactively to prevent fatalities, injuries, and illnesses through a system focused on hazard prevention and control; worksite analysis; training; management commitment and worker involvement. Inclusion into the VPP is OSHA's official recognition of the outstanding efforts of employers and employees who have achieved exemplary occupational safety and health compliance and performance.
