JET’s ‘Star’ certification extended

From Local Sources

JASPER — The Indiana Department of Labor has granted a five-year extension of the Star Certification of Jasper Engines & Transmissions’ Jasper remanufacturing facility in Indiana’s Voluntary Protection Program.

The Wernsing Road remanufacturing facility earned its initial Merit Safety Certification in 2008, ultimately achieving Star Safety Certification in April 2012.

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

Jasper Engines’ three Indiana remanufacturing facilities are part of a group of 92 Indiana companies that have achieved VPP Certification. The company’s Crawford County remanufacturing facility in Leavenworth achieved VPP Star Safety Certification in August 2013. The Drivetrain Remanufacturing facility became VPP Star Certified in January 2018.
