We can assist in the assessment of your organization’s safety culture and the improvement or development of your safety culture guidelines, focused on desired leadership behaviors, management decisions, and corporate safety program guidelines. We can then help translate these safety-first values into day-to-day operating guidelines that are further enhanced with industry best practices, including OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) requirements.

A StrategyDriven Advisor led project management teams of highly experienced industrial personnel in the implementation of the OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (VPP). While in management of ongoing project operations at a $1.4B, 10,000 employee Regional Maintenance Center, he directly managed and implemented VPP process improvement initiatives.
Our advisor worked with bargaining unit employees and supervisors as a member of management to identify personnel safety concerns, hazards, and organizational climate to foster and develop near and long term improvement plans. Weekly project team meetings, daily safety concerns discussions, and worksite personal involvement facilitated continued process improvement and accountability.
Unambiguous, visible safety improvement plans were developed to increase organizational safety awareness, encourage active employee participation, and instill a positive social safety atmosphere between employees and management. Through added program improvements, employees greatly reduced cultural ‘fears’ of reprisal when voicing safety concerns to supervisors and management while improving operational efficiencies in cost , schedule, and quality. Organization is now an OSHA ‘STAR’ site due to its safety improvements.
