Tri-State pilot receives lofty honor

Last week, Tri-State senior captain Barry Hitt of the corporate flight operations group was awarded the “Employee of the Year” award at the annual Region 8 Voluntary Protection Program Participants Association convention held in Denver.  Hitt (right) was
bestowed the honor by OSHA’s Region 8 VPP manager Brad Baptiste (left).

The award was given in the multi-state region to only one employee that has excelled in the Volunteer Protection Program (VPP). Tri-State’s corporate flight operations received a VPP “Star” site designation in June of 2010.

Hitt was instrumental in the set-up of that designation and has managed the ongoing VPP program at the hangar since that time. He has encouraged and instructed several different sites at Tri-State as to the advantages of VPP as a work place culture of safety.
