Exceptionally Safe Worksite Awarded OSHA Commendation

Kana Pipeline, based in Placentia, California, specializes in 'wet' pipeline installations such as sewer, water, and storm drainage structures. Partnering with Southern California's OSHA consultation program early last year, Kana worked with its pipeline crews and clients to maintain a safe worksite.

California's Golden Gate Partnership Recognition Letter rewards contractors who participate in Cal/OSHA's Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star Award. The Cal/VPP Star is a certification program designed to recognize employers whose occupational safety and health programs in high-hazard environments are exemplary.

The award is site-specific and only one letter of recognition is given per company per worksite per year. Henry Miranda, Kana's environmental, health and safety director, said Kana Pipeline volunteered several active projects and won Kana Pipeline's first official recognition with the cooperation of the pipeline crews that worked at the Newport Beach Country Club in conjunction with client, Driver SPG.

"It is so very rewarding and encouraging, working with a team that understands the importance of jobsite safety and is able to blend regulatory compliance and operational performance as one in the same," Miranda said.
