Torcon has been approved by OSHA to participate in its Star VPP Mobile Workforce program on projects in Region 2 (New York and New Jersey) and the Region 3 Philadelphia district.
To be included, Torcon completed a detailed application to OSHA. The evaluation process was conducted by a team of OSHA safety professionals over several days, at Torcon's headquarters and at multiple jobsites. The team interviewed Torcon staff and randomly selected clients and trades workers; inspected field conditions; observed work in the field; attended project safety meetings; and reviewed Torcon's written safety program and our safety record.
OSHA's report to Torcon included the following commentary—
"Please accept my congratulations on this noteworthy achievement. You have joined an elite group of organization that provide exemplary occupational safety and health protection and serve as models for others.

On behalf of OSHA, I extend my thanks to you and your employees for your commitment to excellence, the VPP, and the principle of continuous improvement."
