OSHA VPP (Voluntary Protection Program)
Do you want to excel professionally, to be a leader in your
industry in the safety and health field, to have a strong
positive impact on your company’s bottom line? We can
help you achieve these goals by helping you through the entire
process to become an OSHA VPP participant. Participation
is increasing every year because:
- It is a proven, effective management system;
- OSHA is anxious to increase the number of participants;
- The benefits (some shown below) far outweigh the costs.
"We used the services of Colin Brigham from 1Source Safety and Health, Inc. to perform an OSHA VPP Gap Analysis. Their eyes and experience provided a valuable resource, helping us to identify and address the areas of need, greatly aiding our goal of achieving OSHA VPP Star status."
