According to OSHA, the average VPP worksite has reported LDIR and/or job transfers at least 50% below the industry average. This book explains how to implement the VPP guidelines--even if your company decides not to participate in the VPP Program--and what to expect in terms of cost savings and reduced risk of injuries. The author has worked with many companies who have achieved and maintained VPP status. The tools for change Ms. Garner discusses were developed over the past twenty years working with both corporations and government agencies such as the Johnson Space Center. She provides SH&E managers with the set of principles based on OSHA VPP criteria, the tools to analyze program deficiencies, and proven consensus-building techniques that will result in effective implementation.
"This book takes the reader on a step-by-step journey toward safety, health and environmental excellence by paralleling OSHA's elite Voluntary Protection Programs. This book is directed to those innovative managers who aren't afraid to become a change agent within their own organizations."
- Frank H. Perry, P.E., CSP
"I strongly recommend this book to SHE managers who are trying to make a, 'step function,' improvement in their programs. It will allow you to benchmark where you are using a gap analysis, where you want to be, and how to strategically plan how to get there."
