The Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) promote effective worksite-based safety and health. In the VPP, management, labor, and UOSH establish cooperative relationships at workplaces that have implemented a comprehensive safety and health management system. VPP companies enjoy fewer injuries and illnesses, higher employee morale, increased employee retention, lower worker compensation costs, and a competitive advantage over non-VPP sites.
Presenter: Jerry Parkstone, UOSH Compliance Assistance Specialist
