MI Windows and Doors received another positive review from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

On July 31, a five-member team of inspectors from OSHA announced that MI’s Hegins plants – located in Pennsylvania’s Schuylkill County – would be awarded the Voluntary Protection Program Star. Hegins is the fourth MI campus to earn the VPP Star, following locations in Gratz, Pennsylvania; Prescott Valley, Arizona; and Millersburg, Pennsylvania.
“This is a great example of what MI is all about,” says Matt DeSoto, MI CEO. “Safety is first in our Quality Standards, and the Hegins team has achieved it. I’m so excited about what the future holds for all of us.”
The VPP Star is awarded to companies that go above and beyond in their quest to ensure employee safety. Fewer than 2,300 of the eight million work sites in America – or, less than half of one percent – have garnered the Star, say officials.
The Hegins plants’ recognition came following an intense three-day inspection. The OSHA team interviewed more than 200 MI team members at the Hegins campus, listened to presentations, and conducted tours of the lines.
