Bridgestone plant recognized for safety

This recognition aligns with the “Emotion,” “Ease” and “Empowerment” values of the Bridgestone E8 Commitment.

Bridgestone Americas recently announced that its commercial truck and bus radial (TBR) tire manufacturing facility in Warren County, Tennessee, has received its sixth Volunteer STAR (Safety Through Accountability and Recognition) award. The Volunteer STAR Award is said to be the state’s highest honor for workplace safety and health and is a nationally recognized program patterned after the OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP).

Tennessee Department of Labor & Workforce Development Deputy Commissioner Dewayne Scott presented the Volunteer STAR award to the Warren County Plant team (whose plant, the press release noted, is not considered an official STAR site). There are currently 33 Volunteer STAR sites in Tennessee.
