OSHA Voluntary Protection Program
Croda Inc believes an effective safety and health management system with employee involvement is the best way to prevent occupational illnesses and injuries. OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) was created in 1982 to recognize and partner with businesses and worksites that show excellence in occupational safety and health.
The Atlas Point Delaware and Mill Hall Pennsylvania manufacturing facilities have both achieved OSHA VPP Star status under this voluntary program. The Star Program is designed for exemplary worksites with comprehensive, successful safety and health management systems. Companies in the Star Program have achieved injury and illness rates at or below the national average of their respective industries. Star participants are reevaluated every three to five years, although incident rates are reviewed annually.
