Annual Award Recognition


OSHA as well as Region VI VPPPA recognize VPP sites who have qualified for a variety of awards. While we normally convey congratulations during our annual conference, this unique year has required us to make a few changes. This by no means diminishes the hard work put forth by the below individuals and companies. We look forward to getting back to normal, but until then we ask that you take the time and congratulate those individuals and companies that put forth the extra effort.

 

SGE Awards

Winners:

SGE of the Year Award is Lesli Trahan, Chevron Phillips Chemical Co., Cedar Bayou Plant

EVERETT BEAUJON SPIRIT AWARD

Winner - Chevron Philips Chemical Company - Cedar Bayou, Baytown TX

OSHA SUPPLIED AWARD
This award was named in 2004 to honor Everett Beaujon who passed away in 2003. Everett was a good friend and tireless supporter of VPP and safety and health in general. He will be greatly missed by all of us who knew him and benefited from his knowledge and spirit, but will live on through the many lives he affected while still among us. The award is given to the site that has demonstrated the greatest VPP spirit during the previous year. Applicants described the efforts their company has made to promote VPP outside of their immediate site – whether within other sites in the corporation, the community, etc.
