Clow Valve program honored with Occupational Safety and Health Administration VPP award.

Clow Valve Co., Oskaloosa, Iowa, recently became the first metalcasting facility in Iowa and the second iron/brass facility in the U.S. to receive OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) MERT award.

The award, available to companies in any industry, recognizes work places that successfully incorporate comprehensive safety and health programs into their total management systems, according to an Occupational Safety and Health Administration press release. Winning companies must maintain injury rates below their industry's national average. Clow began its award-winning program one year ago.

"This was a process that took a lot of effort of all Clow's employees," said John Grahek, assistant facility manager. "It is a totally employee driven program, which is way above compliance."
