...first industrial mechanical contractor in the nation to be awarded 'VPPC STAR' status...

The UGS 'standard of excellence' in Safety is earned by a dedicated and conscientious effort at all levels of our organization. This dedication to Safety was recognized by OSHA in 2005 when UGS was designated as the first industrial mechanical contractor in the nation to be awarded 'VPPC STAR' status; A designation we maintain to this day. Our motto is: Safety starts with an 'S' but at United it begins with 'U' (YOU). Our individual employee monitors and maintains the integrity of our Safety Program. Everyone on staff serves as a safety enforcement officer. Our organization includes a Safety Director who oversees an expanding team of Safety Inspectors. In addition, they oversee an extensive Safety training program headed by our 'Zero Tolerance' approach to project Safety.
