A Sherwin-Williams Co. chemical plant in southeastern Kansas has earned top federal honors for its health and safety program.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has designated the Sherwin-Williams plant in Coffeyville a "star" for excellence in its employee safety and health program.
Sixteen people work at the plant, which manufactures and distributes rust inhibitors, flame retardants and other chemicals.
OSHA says Sherwin-Williams earned the star status following an evaluation by the health and safety experts from the agency.
OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program recognizes workplaces with systems that maintain injury and illness rates below national averages.
