Many companies have heard of the OSHA VPP or Voluntary Protection Program but likely don’t know much about it. They know it involves OSHA and their goal has probably been to “mostly” comply with the OSHA regulation and avoid an inspection. But today over 2000 companies are participating in VPP because VPP is really a safety and health management system they promotes and recognizes safety excellence and emphasizes employee involvement. Much of its criteria are similar to other Environmental Health Systems (EHS) management systems like ANSI Z-10 and ISO 1800. VPP was not developed in the dark. It is based on known successful safety programs from companies known for safety excellence.
