"Employers included in this program reported the highest rates of serious injuries and illness in a nationwide survey. CCP enables OSHA to work with these employers and help them reduce hazards in their workplaces."
"What's more, CCP is not a regulation. It is an enforcement program that allows OSHA to target its resources where they are needed most. Targeting hazardous work sites and offering to work with employers is a smart and efficient way for OSHA to leverage its limited resources. Hundreds of work sites in pilot programs have bottom-line experience that proves this concept works to reduce hazards, protect workers and lower workers compensation costs."
