From Local Sources

JASPER — Kimball’s manufacturing plant in Salem has been recommended for a three-year recertification to Voluntary Protection Program Star Status by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Created in 1982, OSHA’s VPP certification signifies the implementation of effective health and safety management systems and is attained only after an organization undergoes a rigorous on-site evaluation conducted by a team of health and safety professionals. The Star Status designation is the highest certification level granted by OSHA and is given to companies with exemplary safety and health management systems that have achieved injury and illness rates at or below the national average of their respective industries.

Kimball is a brand unit of Kimball International, which is headquartered in Jasper.
