Colorado Springs Delta operations receives OSHA award

Delta Air Lines operations in Colorado Springs were recently recognized by the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration for workplace safety and health programs.

Delta Air Lines and its subsidiary DAL Global Services, which serve the Colorado Springs Airport, were inducted into OSHA's Voluntary Protection Programs' Star category, which is the highest level of recognition that OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program gives. The award is given to companies that maintain employee injury and illness rates below the national average for its industry and meet stringent safety and health program elements that exceed regular OSHA standards. Delta and DAL Global Services in Colorado Springs are the only air transportation operators in Colorado to
receive this recognition, according to OSHA.

About 1,600 work sites throughout the U.S. have earned membership in the Voluntary Protection Programs, which recognizes participants that successfully incorporate comprehensive safety and health programs into their management systems. The programs are open to employers in any industry.
