Virginia Department of Labor and Industry recognizes Lockheed Martin for exceptional safety and health practices

RICHMOND, Va. -- Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems in Manassas, Virginia has been reapproved as a Virginia STAR Worksite under the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry's Virginia Occupational Safety and Health (VOSH) Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP).

Lockheed Martin's Manassas facility is one of 37 STAR public and private sector worksites recognized by VOSH. The company is primarily engaged in the development of limited production and prototype sensors, navigation, and surveillance hardware and software for defense and security agencies. There are 1,241 full-time employees at the 1,200,000 square feet workspace located on a 176-acre site. This site is the only Lockheed Martin VPP STAR worksite in Virginia and one of five Lockheed Martin VPP STAR participants in the nation.

The Virginia VPP recognizes and promotes exceptional safety and health management systems for Virginia's employers in all industries. In VPP, the participant's management, workers, and VOSH establish a cooperative relationship that encourages continuous improvement in worksite safety performance.

Acceptance into Virginia's VPP is confirmation and recognition that an employer has achieved safety and health excellence well above their industry peers. The VOSH VPP administers the Virginia STAR, Virginia Challenge, VADOC Challenge, Virginia BEST, and Virginia BUILT programs.

The Virginia Occupational Safety and Health (VOSH) program is financed in part by a grant from the U. S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), under §23(g) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970.

The Virginia On-Site Consultation Cooperative Agreement program is financed in part by a grant from the U. S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), under §21(d) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970.

BC Wood Products in Ashland Receives Virginia SHARP Designation Under the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry’s (DOLI) Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program

RICHMOND, Va. -- Commissioner Gary G. Pan announced today that the BC Wood Products in Ashland, Virginia, has been certified as a Virginia SHARP Worksite under the Virginia Occupational Safety and Health (VOSH) Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP), the agency's highest level of recognition for excellence in safety and health management systems for small businesses.

"This outstanding achievement in occupational safety and health has come through the dedication and hard work of BC Wood Products employees and management. I commend BC Wood Products for embracing the cooperative spirit of the SHARP program, and congratulate them on their hard-earned certification as a Virginia SHARP Worksite," said Commissioner Pan.

BC Wood Products commitment to providing a safe and healthy workplace for its employees is demonstrated by its low injury and illness rates. The Ashland facility has a total three-year average for the TCIR (Total Case Incident Rate for injuries and illnesses) of 1.5 compared with a Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) national rate of 5.1, representing a TCIR rate 71% lower than the national average for the industry. The site's three-year average DART rate (Days Away, Restricted, or Transferred injury and illness cases) is .9, compared with the 3.5 national rate, which is 72% below the national average for the industry.

As part of the recognition for achieving Virginia SHARP status, the worksite is entitled to fly the Virginia "SHARP Worksite" flag. The process for reaching Virginia SHARP status is extensive to ensure that only the very best companies qualify. Currently, there are only 14 Virginia SHARP sites in the state. BC Wood Products site has set a standard of excellence that is second to none.

Virginia businesses that participate in SHARP substantially improve safety and health protection for thousands of Virginia employees through cooperative efforts to reduce injuries, illnesses, and fatal accidents. SHARP worksites regularly report decreased bottom line costs associated with dramatically reduced injury and illness rates (an average of approximately 50% below the respective industry average), and improved productivity and employee morale. Reducing private sector employer costs associated with injuries, illnesses, and fatal accidents enhances a company's economic viability and competitiveness, and increases available capital for reinvestment, expansion, and new hiring.

DOLI operates six recognition programs. These include:

1. Virginia STAR is a cooperative relationship between the VOSH program, the employer, and the employees that include the agreement of company leaders to operate exceptional safety and health management systems that meet a rigorous set of occupational safety and health criteria. Participating employers agree to voluntarily participate in the program and to directly involve employees in all aspects of the company's safety and health management systems. Requirements include an extensive application process, submission of written safety and health policies and procedures, demonstration of successful implementation of those programs through injury and illness rates that are below the national average for the employer's industry, and an intensive weeklong inspection by a team of VPP experts.

2. Virginia BEST (Building Excellence in Safety, Health and Training) is a strategic partnership between the DOLI and the Associated General Contractors of Virginia (AGCVA) that recognizes AGCVA members who voluntarily implement highly effective safety and health management systems to benefit construction workers and reduce or eliminate injuries, illnesses, and fatalities on construction sites in Virginia.

3. Virginia BUILT is a new strategic partnership between the DOLI and the Associated Builders and Contractors of Virginia (ABCVA) and is designed to encourage and recognize ABC-VA members who voluntarily implement highly effective safety and health management systems to benefit construction workers and reduce or eliminate injuries, illnesses, and fatalities on construction sites in Virginia. The Virginia BUILT program incorporates the ABC STEP program (Safety Training Evaluation Process) as the gateway to participation in Virginia BUILT.

4. Virginia CHALLENGE is a formal three stage recognition program that dramatically improves safety and health at the worksite and prepares the company to apply for Virginia STAR recognition.

5. VOSH-VADOC CHALLENGE is a strategic partnership between the DOLI and the Virginia Department of Corrections (VADOC) to recognize safety and health excellence at correctional facilities around the Commonwealth. Three stages of participation in VADOC Challenge prepare a site to apply for Virginia STAR recognition. Virginia has the only two correctional facilities in the nation to have received VPP STAR status, Augusta and Lunenburg Correctional Centers. Additional information can be obtained by contacting the DOLI office closest to you at www.doli.virginia.gov or contact Milford Stern, VPP Manager, at (540) 562-3580, ext. 123, or Milford.Stern@doli.virginia.gov.

6. The Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) recognizes businesses of 250 employees or fewer and is administered by the DOLI Consultative Services Division. Contact Tracy Michaud, Consultation Program Manager, at (804) 786-8707 or tracy.michaud@doli.virginia.gov.

DOLI also offers free On-Site Consultation Services to help employers better understand and voluntarily comply with VOSH standards. Priority is given to high hazard workplaces with 250 or fewer employees and all services are offered to employers at no cost. On-Site Consultation Services helps employers identify and correct potential safety and health hazards by conducting walk-through surveys (without citations or penalties), abatement advice, on-site training, and program assistance to develop safety and health programs. Additional information about On-Site Consultation Services can be obtained by contacting the DOLI office closest to you at www.doli.virginia.gov or by contacting Tracy Michaud, Consultation Program Manager, at (804) 786-8707, or tracy.michaud@doli.virginia.gov.

The Virginia Occupational Safety and Health (VOSH) program is financed in part by a grant from the U. S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), under §23(g) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. The FFY21 Virginia State Plan is funded by a grant of $4,332,400 federal funds, which constitutes 50% of the State Plan budget excluding any state overmatch funds. Zero percent, or $0.00 of the State Plan budget, is financed through nongovernmental sources.

The Virginia On-Site Consultation Cooperative Agreement program is financed in part by a grant from the U. S. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), under §21(d) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970. The FFY21 Virginia Consultation program is funded by a grant of $1,189,200 federal funds, which constitutes 90% of the Virginia Consultation program budget excluding any state overmatch funds. Zero percent, or $0.00 of the Virginia Consultation budget, is financed through nongovernmental sources.

Connected Solutions Group Releases m106 LTE Gateway Router

RICHMOND, Va. -- Connected Solutions Group, LLC (CSG), a national leader in wireless hardware deployment and services, today announced that it is bringing its first in-house hardware product to market, the CSG m106 LTE Gateway Router. The router, designed to operate on the Verizon network, will be used for a wide range of business connectivity use cases.

"This is the next step in the evolution of CSG bringing dynamic and high-demand products into the market," stated Michael Pittman, CEO at CSG, "We have spent over a year in development making sure the device meets standards worthy of our brand. In the end, we've built something made with outstanding quality and with more features than most routers that are anywhere near the price point we will be able to offer."

Of the many features of the m106 Router, some of the key differentiators are its internal battery that will take over if external power is not available for up to eight hours; both WAN and LAN ethernet ports; IP passthrough mode; a cloud management portal with remote monitoring capabilities of the device; a pair of premium Panorama-4G/LTE Paddle antennas; inline failover capabilities; an included wall mount bracket; and a USB port that can output a charge to other devices.

A key motivation behind the device are the growing Business Internet (BI) offerings from Verizon. BI allows businesses to use the Verizon network as their primary internet service and requires a cellular connected router to facilitate the service for each customer.

"We've been a key player in BI 'Business Internet' since Verizon introduced it last year," said Pittman, "As we've put thousands of routers into the BI program, use cases have become clear to us that require features not available on some entry-level routers. The m106 feature set solves for many of the needs that Verizon is positioning BI into."

On the support side, CSG is backing up the device with included managed services and support for every Verizon BI customer who purchases the m106. "We are fully vested in every customer's success with this device," commented Pittman, "So it seemed natural to us to give six months of managed services with every sale. This support is with our own, US-based employees who will be here to hold the customer's hand through any questions they may have, assure that the device is set up properly for every unique use case, and even proactively monitor device status for the customer."

"At the end of the day, this is the CSG difference," concluded Pittman, "We're going to offer the best possible product backed by the best possible service in the industry. Our customers deserve it, Verizon customers deserve it, and, with the m106, we're going to deliver it."

About Connected Solutions Group:

Connected Solutions Group, LLC (CSG) is a Richmond, Virginia-based leading VAR and wireless hardware deployment company. By bridging the wide gaps between development and deployment of M2M and IoT projects, CSG has created a true turnkey solution allowing customers to focus on building their applications while we design and implement cost-effective hardware to execute them efficiently.

By Light Awarded $82M VA Contract

MCLEAN, Va. -- By Light Professional IT Services LLC (By Light) has been awarded the My HealtheVet (MHV) Development, Security and Operations (DevSecOps) contract by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Valued at $82M over five (5) years, this contract provides for the continued support and development of VA's Veteran-facing Electronic Health portal.

"Team By Light considers it an honor to continue our long and valued partnership with VA to provide innovative DevSecOps solutions to the MHV Program with a Scaled Agile and Digital Services Playbook approach," says Bill Sackewitz, By Light Senior VP for Digital Transformation. "Our team has invested heavily in DevSecOps, User Centered Design, and Lean Agile Product Delivery methods to hasten and improve value delivered to the customer. Our mission in By Light's Chief Strategy Office is to help our teams and our clients adopt new ways of working that lead to better user outcomes."

The MHV patient portal provides healthcare communications and coordination for millions of Veterans, caretakers, and providers. The MHV program is a nationwide initiative intended to improve the overall health of Veterans. It provides an eHealth portal, a secure environment where Veterans can view and manage their personal health record online and access health information, health assessments, and electronic services. Online health resources will enable and encourage patient/provider collaboration, as clinicians will be able to communicate with Veterans more easily.

The online environment will complement existing Veterans Health Administration (VHA) clinical business practices and be transformational in the way health care is delivered and managed. Like other VA systems MHV will eventually be integrated into VA.gov that will be accessible to Veterans from MHV, or other web portals as identified by the government.

"Our team has been supporting the development and expansion of MHV since 2012 and is dedicated to furthering the evolution of one of the U.S. Government's largest and most important technical programs benefiting those who have served," states Matt Bain, MHV Program Director at By Light. "We are very proud of our ten years of supporting MHV eHealth delivery capabilities and look forward to further deliver new and innovative solutions that support VA's Office of Connected Care ecosystem and improve the experience for Veterans and their care givers."

"We are happy to have By Light back and to continue the great work we have done together over the past decade," notes Greg Kirk, MHV Program Manager. "The MHV solution will continue to evolve with the DevSecOps contract, and the results will ultimately deliver better products and services faster to the Veterans."

About By Light:

By Light Professional IT Services LLC (https://www.bylight.com) headquartered in McLean, Virginia, is an ISO 9001, 20000-1, and 27001 registered and CMMI Level 3 rated systems integrator that provides innovative IT, infrastructure solutions, and full spectrum cyberspace operations for U.S. Federal and State Government Agencies.

CleverFiles Becomes the First Company to Offer Software Licenses as NFTs

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- Non-fungible tokens, or NFTs for short, have already enabled many innovative use cases, from digital collectibles to private membership experiences. Today, CleverFiles, a software company based in Alexandria, VA, announced its collection of 100 full-featured transferable lifetime licenses for its world-famous data recovery software, Disk Drill, sold as NFTs on OpenSea.

CleverFiles is the first software developer in the world to explore this pioneering NFT use case, which could revolutionize how software licenses are distributed, stored, and authenticated. The collection, called Disk Drill - Essential Data Recovery, is available for purchase on OpenSea, the first and largest digital marketplace for crypto collectibles and NFTs.

Each of the 100 full-featured lifetime licenses costs the equivalent of $79 in USD Coin, a digital stablecoin that is pegged to the United States dollar to maintain a stable value. In comparison, a standard Disk Drill PRO license costs $89, while the lifetime one is $118, making the NFT licenses more than 30% cheaper. What's more, all NFT licenses can be used to unlock both the Mac and Windows version of Disk Drill.

Besides being more affordable, NFT licenses for Disk Drill offer several attractive benefits thanks to the underlying blockchain technology:

* They can be easily resold or transferred as unique gifts.

* Only a cryptocurrency wallet address is required to purchase a license.

* Each license comes with a unique piece of NFT art that provides additional value as an attractive digital collectible.

* To maintain proper price and gas estimates, the collection exists and is sold on Polygon.

* There are more than 10 traits in the Disk Drill's NFT collection.

Despite taking advantage of some of the most innovative technologies in the world, the NFT licenses are just as easy to use as regular ones, requiring no technical knowledge besides the ability to maintain a cryptocurrency wallet.

To see the entire collection of 100 full-featured transferable lifetime NFT licenses for Disk Drill PRO, visit this OpenSea collection.

About NFTs

Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are units of data stored on a blockchain, a decentralized database that makes it possible for transactions to be organized without a central authority.

Its flagship data recovery application, Disk Drill, has been available since 2010, helping thousands of Windows and Mac users achieve professional results when recovering lost data, all while being exceptionally easy to use and costing a small fraction of what professional data recovery centers charge for their services.

Blue Glacier Publishes ‘Red Team’ Report on ‘What if Kim Jong Un Dies in 2022?’

FAIRFAX, Va. -- Blue Glacier Security & Intelligence LLC announced it has published a thought-provoking Red Team memorandum titled "What if Kim Jong Un Dies in 2022?" This "out-of-the-box" analytic approach offers a thought-provoking viewpoint after Kim's recent, drastic weight loss and continued weapons tests.

The Red Team memorandum addresses how Kim might die in 2022, who might succeed him, and how that succession could unfold.

Blue Glacier's Red Team memorandums are modeled after the Central Intelligence Agency's Red Cell memorandums. This latest Blue Glacier effort follows the company's prescient Red Team memo on the intersection of cybercrime, anti-vaccination militancy, and pandemic fatigue that was published in August (https://blueglacierllc.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/07/Blue-Glacier-Red-Team-Memo_Cybercrime-Anti-Vax-July-30-2021.pdf).

Key takeaways from this Red Team memorandum include:

* Kim Jong Un's father (Kim Jong Il), grandfather (Kim Il Sung), and half-brother (Kim Jong Nam) all had problems with heart disease. Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung both suffered from diabetes and stress and died of heart attacks. Kim Jong Un's aunt (his father's sister) reportedly also has heart problems.

* Kim Jong Un's habits and family history of heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and nicotine addiction indicate significant health risks.

* Several real and perceived assassination attempts against Kim Jong Un and his father (some of these attempts are listed in the Red Team memo) likely inform Kim's understanding of threats to his power.

* Kim Jong Un has probably selected a successor from within his family (the "Paektu bloodline"). However, Kim's eldest son will be only 11 or 12 years old if Kim dies in 2022.

* Kim Jong Un's sister Kim Yo Jong is likely being groomed to be regent for her nephew, rather than supreme leader, if Kim Jong Un does not live to oversee the transition himself.

* The 72-year-old Choe Ryong Hae (Kim Yo Jong's father-in-law), president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly and also first vice-chairman of the State Affairs Commission, could be the elite who would most likely dare to question Kim Jong Un, or attempt to consolidate power and succeed Kim if the supreme leader dies in 2022, or even mount a coup.

"This Red Team effort reminds us to avoid tunnel vision on the Ukraine war," notes K. Campbell, a principal at Blue Glacier. "Kim's significant health risks, in addition to the constant threats of assassination and coups he faces, has implications for all of East Asia and beyond."
