Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP)
Created in 1982, OSHA's Voluntary Protection Programs recognize facilities that show excellence in occupational safety and health. OSHA’s goal, through VPP, is to partner with management and labor for a safer and healthier work environment through active employee involvement and management commitment. Participants’ illness and injury rates must be below the industry average for at least three years to qualify for Star status.

Employees at Koch-Glitsch LP’s Wichita, Dallas, and Houston sites have achieved Star status in OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) for “sustained excellence in all areas of your [Koch-Glitsch’s] safety and health management system.”

Wichita received its certification in 2004 (recertified in 2007), followed by Dallas in 2006, and Houston in 2008. A sister company, Koch Specialty Plant Services, Inc., is the first specialty contractor in its industry to achieve OSHA VPP Star Mobile Workforce status in June 2008.

The average VPP worksite has a lost workday incidence rate 52% below the average for its industry. Koch-Glitsch, LP’s average injury rate is 91% below the national average for its industry.
