OSHA's VPP Reaches Milestone with 2,000th Inductee

Wyeth Pharmaceuticals' Pearl River research and manufacturing facility will become the 2,000th worksite in the OSHA's Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP).

Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Edwin G. Foulke Jr. officially will note the milestone in an induction ceremony and VPP flag raising. He will be joined by Wyeth executives and employees; Robert Kulick, OSHA's new regional administrator in New York; elected officials; and area dignitaries.

VPP is a merit-based program that recognizes worksites committed to effective employee protection beyond the requirements of OSHA standards, and encourages cooperative relationships among organized labor, management, and government. VPP worksites have experienced lowered workers' compensation expenses, positive changes in company culture and attitudes, and injury and illness rates on average 50 percent lower than others in their respective industries.

The event will take place today at Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, located at 401 N. Middletown Road, Pearl River, N.Y. The ceremony is scheduled for 9 a.m. EDT and the flag raising at 10:30 a.m.
