RR Donnelley Printing Operation Recertified for OSHA's VPP Star Status

Friday, June 26, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

CHICAGO -- R.R. Donnelley & Sons Company announced today that its Roanoke, Virginia production facility has been recertified with Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star Status by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

The Star certification is the highest that OSHA grants and is awarded only after a comprehensive on-site evaluation and confirmation that the facility’s injury and illness rates are below the industry average nationwide.

On a global basis, RR Donnelley’s safety performance outperforms the industry average by more than 50%, as measured by the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Recordable Case Rates.

“To earn recertification is especially challenging because continuous improvement is integral to the evaluation,” said Daniel Knotts, RR Donnelley Group President. “Working from a starting point that was already exceptional, our Roanoke employees improved their safety performance to an even higher level. We have always regarded safety as the number one indicator of operational excellence and we are delighted that our Roanoke facility has been recognized with this important certification.”

According to Michael Manzella, Senior Vice President of Environmental, Health, Safety & Quality, “Roanoke is one of several RR Donnelley facilities to have achieved VPP status. Our employees do an exceptional job of following and enhancing the processes that guide us as we strive to provide a safe and healthy workplace environment across the world.”
