Indiana Co Earns Highest Safety Award


Indianapolis, IN ( - Nucor Building Systems in Waterloo, Indiana, has set a standard few other companies in its industry can claim. With its workplace injury and illness rates 80 percent lower than the company's industry average, Nucor Building Systems has earned a Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) STAR certification.  

VPP STAR certification is the highest award for workplace safety and health. 

“Nucor's commitment to employee safety is a model for every business to follow,” said Indiana Department of Labor Commissioner Sean M. Keefer. “The Indiana Department of Labor congratulates Nucor for improving from a VPP Merit site, an already admirable accomplishment, to a VPP STAR site – the pinnacle of safety and health achievement.”

Nucor Building Systems' Waterloo facility has demonstrated an exemplary commitment to worker safety through its safety-oriented policy decisions, management involvement across all levels and regular occupational hazard monitoring. 

To participate in VPP, a company must develop and implement an exemplary worker safety and health program, maintain occupational injury and illness rates that are below the national industry average and undergo a rigorous facility evaluation. 

Nucor Building Systems, a division of Nucor Corporation, has been a leader in the design and manufacture of custom-engineered metal building systems for more than 25 years. Beginning in Waterloo in 1987, the company now has a sales office and four full-service plants strategically located throughout the country. Nucor Building Systems employs 318 full-time Hoosier workers at its Waterloo location and more than 1,000 teammates across its four plants.
