Enterprise Health & Safety Manager Bob Simmons recognized for outstanding voluntary service and contributions to safety and health excellence


Marvin Enterprise Health & Safety Manager Bob Simmons has been awarded the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Special Government Employee of the Year for his significant contributions to workplace and community safety.


Announced at the National Voluntary Protection Programs Participants Association (VPPPA) Safety + National Conference in September, Simmons was commended for his volunteerism and outstanding commitment to the partnership ideals of the Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP).


Simmons achieved this national recognition as a result of his participation on multiple VPP on-site evaluation teams, mentorship to multiple worksites and assisting OSHA with formal VPP training programs. In addition, Simmons provided driver safety outreach to the public.


In his role as Enterprise Health & Safety Manager at Marvin’s West Fargo facility, Simmons oversees all safety duties and responsibilities for the West Fargo South facility and the Distribution Center in West Fargo, ND. He has been a valued member of the Marvin team for more than 28 years and is known for his extensive knowledge in safety and VPP.


“We put our safety culture first at Marvin, which shapes how we manufacture, ship and deliver Marvin products,” said Marvin President Darrin Peterson. “Bob’s commitment to a safety mindset, best-in-class protocols and sharing his expertise with others is admirable and we are very grateful for his continued leadership at Marvin.”


Marvin has 8 VPP Star certified manufacturing locations. Across the United States, less than 3 percent of manufacturers have earned VPP certification.
