L&W Supply Corporation Branch In Indianapolis, Ind. Honored As OSHA Voluntary Protection Program Star Workplace

Stocks in this article: USG

USG Corporation (NYSE: USG), a leading building products company, and its distribution subsidiary, L&W Supply Corporation celebrated achieving the prestigious Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) Star designation from the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for the L&W Supply, Indianapolis Drywall Supply branch.

Indianapolis is the third L&W Supply branch to achieve the Star designation, the highest recognition within OSHA’s VPP program. OSHA officials presented the award to the branch’s 15 employees today, with L&W Supply senior management and customers also in attendance.

To attain the Star designation, employees, management and OSHA work together to implement safety and health programs and processes that go beyond OSHA regulations to further protect employees and promote safe operations. Fewer than 2,500 worksites of the more than eight million in the U.S. have received the VPP Star designation.

L&W Supply is the largest specialty dealer in North America for drywall, ceilings, steel framing and other building materials, with more than 140 locations. Indianapolis Drywall Supply opened in 1970 as the first L&W Supply branch location. It supplies construction materials to builders, contractors and other customers in central Indiana. Like all L&W Supply branches, it specializes in delivering the materials and then stocking them throughout the job site. Despite the potential hazards posed by this process, the L&W Supply employees have established an exceptional safety record. The Indianapolis branch has not experienced a lost workday incident since December of 2004.

“The L&W Supply team in Indianapolis achieved these results not just at the branch but while operating on job sites, where conditions change constantly and are often beyond employees’ control,” said Brendan Deely, president and chief executive officer, L&W Supply, and executive vice president, USG Corporation. “It takes exceptional ability and focus to meet these exceptional challenges, and it’s why we are recognized as industry leaders in safety.”
