INDIANAPOLIS (Aug. 23, 2019) – The Indiana Department of Labor announced today that the Marathon Petroleum Company Speedway Terminal in Indianapolis is a recertified STAR participant in the Indiana Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). The facility is part of a selection of workplaces that have exceeded occupational safety and health expectations and demonstrated a commitment to putting the well-being of Hoosier workers first.
The STAR status is part of the VPP, which provides recognition to Hoosier employers that operate exemplary safety and health management systems. Certification in VPP is an achievement that identifies employers who serve as a model worksite for Hoosier workplace safety and health.
Marathon Petroleum Corporation is an American petroleum refining, marketing, and transportation company headquartered in Findlay, Ohio. It is currently the largest petroleum refinery operator in the United States. Marathon Petroleum Company’s Speedway Operations office houses 71 workers.
“For this small team, everyone’s well-being is of the most importance, and that is worthy of recognition,” said Indiana Department of Labor Commissioner Rick J. Ruble. “Congratulations to management and employees at this Marathon Petroleum office for your accomplishments in safety and health.”
For the past three Occupational Safety and Health Administration-recordable years, the facility has recorded an average total case incident rate of less than 1 percent. Additionally, the Marathon Petroleum Company office has a days away restricted or transferred rate of zero.
