East Texas Post Office Receives National Award

An East Texas post office is being recognized as one of the safest work sites in the country.   Tyler's Main Post Office, on Martin Luther King Boulevard, received the VPP Star Award, which is the highest rating given to a facility. OSHA presented the award. It evaluated Tyler's post office based on criteria such as hazard prevention and training programs.

"It's really the employees that made it happen," said Fred Arrambidez, Tyler's Postmaster. "You know, I have some of the best employees in the country, and they are the ones that become involved. They are the ones that made it happen. In fact, they were recognized recently in Orlando for having zero accidents."   

Seventy postal facilities, nationwide have received the award. The Tyler site is the first in the Dallas District to receive the award.
