OSHA VPP (Voluntary Protection Program) Consulting

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; and
  • 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."
— Glenn H. Hutt, CSP, CHMM, Schering-Plough Corporation, Cleveland, Tennessee

Our OSHA Voluntary Protection Program Plan

1Source Safety and Health, Inc. has helped a wide range of company sizes in a wide variety of industries to improve their safety and health management systems and performance. Our team of professionals includes 9 Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH), 3 Certified Safety Professionals (CSP), 2 Certified Professional Environmental Auditors (CPEA), and 1 Certified Professional Ergonomist (CPE). We have performed hundreds of safety and health audits. The process for becoming a participant frequently starts by our performing an OSHA VPP Gap Analysis. This helps you to identify and prioritize needs. We then have the team with the tools to help build your program and implement a process that will lead to OSHA VPP participation. We have written policies and procedures, evaluated exposures, conducted training, helped change cultures, and assisted in control design and installation.

What are some of the results of achieving OSHA VPP participant status?

  • Combined improved quality, safety, and productivity records over a 7 year period (Potlatch Consumer Products Division); and
  • 50% reduction in workers' compensation costs over a 4-year period and customer recognition for commitment to safety and health (Curtis Lumber).
