The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently recognized Boise Cascade LLC's packing and newsprint facility in Burley, Idaho, for membership into its prestigious Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) at the highest, or "Star," level. The ceremony was held at the facility on June 21.

"The level of safety and health excellence achieved at the Boise Cascade Packaging and Newsprint facility in Burley is impressive and shows that work can be done safely with proper hazard analysis, planning and training," said Richard Terrill, OSHA's regional administrator in Seattle.

The Boise Cascade Burley facility has 132 onsite employees who manufacture combined board sheets and process them into boxes.
