The Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration (TOSHA) division of the Department of Labor and Workforce Development (TDLWD) has recognized the Parker Filtration Innovation Center with its Volunteer Safety Through Accountability and Recognition (STAR) Award.
The Volunteer STAR Award is the state’s highest honor for workplace safety and health and is a nationally recognized program patterned after the OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). Because the company has received the award, its Columbia facility is considered a Volunteer STAR site.
On Friday, April 29th, 2022, TDLWD Deputy Commissioner Dewayne Scott presented Parker Hannifin leadership team with a glass award and a Volunteer Star Flag to fly at the facility. The Parker Filtration Innovation Center is now one of only 34 Volunteer STAR sites in Tennessee.
Employees at the Parker Filtration Innovation Center are engaged in research and development of filtration products. This is the first Volunteer STAR Award the facility has received.
