There’s the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) original 1989 safety and health management program guidelines, OSHA’s voluntary protection program (VPP) “Star” criteria from 2008, and 2016 recommended practices for safety and health programs. Employer commitment and employee involvement, worksite analysis and evaluation, hazard prevention and control, and safety training are the major elements of the voluntary program guidelines. Worksite analysis includes both initial hazard identification and an on-going evaluation of working conditions and processes. New hazards may occur with changes in equipment, methods, and workflows.
