Safety and Health Programs
Effective management of worker safety and health protection is a decisive factor in reducing the extent and the severity of work-related injuries and illnesses. A good safety and health program addresses all work-related hazards, including those potential hazards that could result from a change in worksite conditions or practices.
OSHA’s experience in the Voluntary Protection Program has also indicated that effective management of safety and health protection improves employee morale and productivity, as well as significantly reducing Workers’ Compensation costs and other less obvious costs of work-related injuries and illnesses.
