As part of a company-wide programme to optimise safety, West Star Aviation has implemented a fall protection system at its facility in Grand Junction, Colorado. The company says its safety initiative will be complete at all four of its full-service locations – which aside from the Grand Junction site include East Alton in Illinois, Chattanooga in Tennessee and Perryville in Missouri – by the end of 2020. It says the update will be 90% complete by the end of 2019.
“We will continue to invest in overall safety for our customers and employees while making West Star’s safety a top priority,” said Rodger Renaud, president and COO.
In addition, the Grand Junction, Aspen and Denver facilities have been awarded a Cost Containment Certificate for the fifth year in a row by the state of Colorado, based on their safety records.
“We are proud to be awarded this certificate another year,” said Kraig Meyer, director of environmental, health and safety at West Star Aviation. “We continue to work diligently to improve our safety standards at every opportunity.”
