Midland Company Recognized for Exemplary Safety Program

MIDLAND — Commissioner of Workers’ Compensation Ryan Brannan presented Dickson Process Systems, LLC, with the Lone Star Safety Program Award here today. The award recognizes Texas employers with low numbers of work-related injuries and illnesses as well as excellent safety programs that can serve as models for other employers.

Dickson Process Systems has approximately 50 employees in Midland and fabricates liquid pressure vessels for the oil and gas industry.

“Dickson Process Systems has created an outstanding safety culture that fosters high quality and active participation in their safety programs,” Brannan said.

Dickson Process Systems is a first-time participant in the Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC) Occupational Safety and Health Consultation (OSHCON) Program. It was awarded a Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) designation by DWC and the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). The SHARP Award recognizes small, private sector Texas employers for exemplary safety and health programs after participation in the OSHCON program. SHARP recipients receive an exemption from programmed OSHA inspections.

DWC provides services to help Texas employers provide safe and healthy workplaces. These services include safety training DVD loans at no cost, free safety and health publications, customized onsite safety training, and the Safety Violations Hotline. For more information on these services, and for eligibility criteria for the Lone Star Safety Program and SHARP awards, visit the Texas Department of Insurance website at www.tdi.texas.gov/wc/safety/index.html or call (800) 252-7031, option 2.
