Voluntary Protection Plan: Foundation for the Future

Host: Forrest Richardson, CSP

In this Webinar you will learn the benefits of setting up your safety program in the VPP format. The VPP Program is the foundation for the highest-rated safety programs. By following the VPP path your company will not only provide the safest work environment for your employees but also set a foundation to improve on production, quality and employee morale. This webinar will provide you with information on how to apply for VPP STAR status and how to maintain it.  

When companies are introduced to the VPP program they often see that they are closer then they think. They also get to see the advantages of being in the VPP program like lower absenteeism, fewer injuries and public recognition. This Webinar will explain how to build on Management Involvement, Workplace Safety, and Employee Morale. Reduction in injuries and better organization of safety programs is also a benefit of VPP.
