Torcon is one of the construction industry’s safest firms. Our company has taken a leadership role in construction safety over the past 25 years through the implementation of innovative safety initiatives. At the forefront of our safety efforts is Torcon's alignment with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA's) Voluntary Protection Program (VPP)— OSHA’s most demanding program.

Torcon is a nationally recognized partner in VPP and has been a member of the VPP Participants Association for almost two decades. Our projects have earned an industry-leading 22 VPP Stars—the highest possible VPP rating. Torcon has earned VPP Stars on its projects in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Puerto Rico. Even Torcon’s corporate headquarters is a VPP Star site.

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 Region 3 (Philadelphia Designated Geographic Area).  Learn more.

Representatives from the General Building Contractors Association, the Building Trades, Local 8 and the Subcontractor Association of Delaware Valley were present at the OSHA Star VPP Mobile Workforce ceremony in Philadelphia, PA. All are important partners with Torcon in ensuring jobsite safety.

 

Torcon's VPP record demonstrates true leadership—

  • The first construction industry firm in the nation to be recognized for multiple Star sites.
  • The first VPP Guanin ever awarded to a construction site in Puerto Rico. (Guanin is equivalent to Star).
  • The first VPP Star construction site to ever be recertified (The Valley Hospital)
  • The first VPP Star pharmaceutical plant site to ever be recertified (Bristol-Myers Squibb)

The result for Torcon and our clients has been outstanding safety performance on all of our projects.

OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) has created a partnership with Torcon to promote the safest and most healthy workplaces.

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.
