Team Inc. earns elite status for ensuring worker safety

BILLINGS, MT – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has certified Team Inc., which performs nondestructive testing at the Phillips 66 Refinery in Billings, as a “Star” employer in the agency’s Voluntary Protection Programs.

OSHA announced the Star designation as part of its initial program certification of Team Inc. The designation recognizes employers and employees who demonstrate exemplary achievement in the prevention and control of occupational safety and health hazards as well as the development, implementation and continuous improvement of their safety and health management systems. 

The VPP is the highest level of OSHA recognition of employers and workers who have implemented effective safety and health management systems and maintained injury and illness rates below the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ industry averages.

Team Inc. employs 22 people in Billings and 6,800 employees nationwide who test refinery piping and equipment to ensure mechanical integrity. With its Billings’ designation, Team Inc. now has five VPP sites.

“OSHA commends Team Inc.’s employees for their commitment to workplace safety and health, and for meeting the rigorous requirements of our Voluntary Protection Programs,” said OSHA Regional Director Jennifer Rous in Denver. “By recognizing the significant hazards refineries present, Team Inc.’s efforts to achieve VPP Star designation demonstrate their dedication to the safety of their employees, their host site Phillips 66, and to the Billings community.”
