Four Hypertherm facilities have been honored by the U.S. Labor Department and OSHA for the company’s commitment to safety.

The New Hampshire-based cutting systems maker’s facilities were added to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Voluntary Protection Program Star Worksite list for ensuring the control and prevention of hazards. Hypertherm officials accepted the honor at a June 5 ceremony. 

“The cornerstone of our program is Hypertherm’s culture which promotes associate involvement and teamwork at all levels of our organization,” said Hypertherm founder and CEO Dick Couch. “All team members work together to design workplace enhancements that will improve the overall well-being of all Hypertherm associates with an ultimate goal of zero workplace accidents.”
