Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital has been an OSHA Voluntary Protection Program (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. A reminder that as the dates for the upcoming OSHA recertification visit to RPH are April 18-19. We will welcome Terry Penn, VPP Program Manager at OSHA, Bobbi Jo Hurst, Manager, Health & Safety, Penn Medicine/Lancaster General Health and Sean Wolfe, Senior Safety and Health Analyst at Lockheed Martin. 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.

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.
