Building Your Star Program A step-by-step guide to the Voluntary Protection Programs The demand for information on the Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) is rapidly expanding. Set up to promote excellence in safety and health management, this prestigious government program now boasts more than 400 participating worksites, with gains ranging from increased productivity to reduction in workplace injury and insurance costs. Written by a VPP expert and one of the original developers of the program at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), this timely "how-to" book gives safety and health professionals all the information they need to get into the VPP as well as renew their participation for years to come. The author clearly outlines the benefits of the program, offers advice on how to win support for it from both management and labor, and presents a complete set of tools for building a successful star program--one that meets all of the VPP criteria. Special features include:<br> * Step-by-step instructions to the VPP application and post-approval process<br> * A comprehensive "VPP Requirements Guide," containing requirements for OSHA and the Department of Energy (DOE) and an appendix detailing state differences<br> * Quick, in-depth tests for assessing a worksite against the VPP requirements<br> * Action checklists to help plan for onsite reviews<br> * Firsthand accounts by successful applicants in participating worksites<br> * Interviews with individuals who review applications and evaluate worksites
