OSHA to Re-certify Robert Packer Hospital for VPP

Mar 15, 2019

You may recall that Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) representatives recently visited the Guthrie Sayre campus in January. This visit was part of Guthrie Medical Group’s application for Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) status. 

Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital has been a VPP Star Site since 2005. As one of only six VPP-certified hospitals in the country, we are proud to continue our partnership with OSHA. We will be welcoming OSHA back to RPH on April 15th -17 for a 3-year recertification visit. You may be interviewed by one of the OSHA auditors/inspectors. We have been informed by OSHA that these interviews are not meant to disrupt the day-to-day work flow. If you are chosen to be interviewed, please answer all questions openly and honestly. In preparation for the interview, we have outlined a set of questions that you may be asked. Click here to view the questions.

The VPP recognizes employers and workers in private industry and federal agencies who have implemented effective safety-and-health management systems and maintain injury and illness rates below national Bureau of Labor Statistics averages for their respective industries.
