Existing Programs

The following references identify programs and systems that have been shown to effectively reduce workplace injuries and illnesses.

  • Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP). In VPP, management, labor, and OSHA work cooperatively and proactively to prevent fatalities, injuries, and illnesses through a system focused on: hazard prevention and control; worksite analysis; training; and management commitment and worker involvement.
  • Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP). The On-site Consultation Program's Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP) recognizes small employers who operate an exemplary safety and health management system.
  • OSHA Challenge Program. OSHA Challenge helps companies take a more proactive approach to safety and health by providing an online roadmap that guides them through the steps needed to meet VPP requirements. As employers make incremental improvements in their safety and health management systems, OSHA will recognize their progress.
  • Alliance Program Case Studies. Case studies developed through the OSHA Alliance Program that demonstrate the value of successful safety and health programs.
