Associated Press Release
ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. (AP) -- A unit at Robins Air Force Base is celebrating a top safety award from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Members of the 402nd Maintenance Support Group received its Star Site flag this week. The Telegraph reports the honor is OSHA's highest award through its Voluntary Protection Program, and the unit is the second at Robins to receive the recognition. The first was the 402nd Software Maintenance Group in 2009.
Brig. Gen. Cedric George, commander of the Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex, says the unit has reduced reportable accidents by 45 percent and safety violations by 95 percent. Reportable accidents are those that require medical attention beyond first aid.
The unit is responsible for planning, installing and maintaining ground support equipment, as well as managing the complex's energy program.
