OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program

Would your company like to be exempt from planned OSHA inspections and be recognized by OSHA as a leader in the safety industry?

If your company is serious about safety, look into applying for OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). Lancaster Safety Consulting, Inc. was certified by OSHA as a VPP STAR-Mobile Workforce and our goal is to help other companies achieve this prestigious status as well. Watch our webinar below to learn more or give us a call at 888.401.6026.

 

Q: What is VPP?
A: OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) was originally introduced in 1982 for general industry sites who desired to achieve and maintain a high standard of occupational safety and health excellence for its workforce. In 2006, OSHA expanded the VPP to include construction companies and companies with “mobile workforces”. For more information, please visit the VPP section on OSHA’s website: click here

Q: Why should your company consider becoming a VPP member?
A: To help achieve a safer and healthier work environment for your valued workers, help reduce workers’ compensation costs by reducing occupational injuries and illnesses, and to gain a competitive edge in today’s marketplace. Once accepted into the VPP, your company would become exempt from OSHA citations issued through planned inspections.

Q: Why did Lancaster Safety Consulting, Inc. (LSCI) commit to VPP?
A: To improve the occupational safety and health of our own valued employees and to learn the VPP standard of excellence so that we can help our clients achieve and maintain a safer work environment.
