Voluntary Protection Programs: The Pursuit of Excellence

On 3 September 2008, Fluor Corp. announced that is was chosen by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration [OSHA] as the newest participant in the Voluntary Protection Program [VPP] Corporate Pilot.  OSHA’s Corporate VPP is a premier program recognizing elite companies with an unquestionable commitment to health and safety.   Launched in May 2004, the primary goal of OSHA’s Corporate VPP was to streamline the VPP application and on-site evaluation process for organizations that are committed to VPP.  Companies that qualify for the program have to meet stringent standards based on OSHA’s VPP principles.

Great companies find ways to differentiate their safety cultures from average companies.
