ENVIRONMENTAL, HEALTH AND SAFETY
VPG's Environmental, Health and Safety program strives for excellence through operational integration and systematic, strategic planning. Anchored by a living EHS Policy, foundational guidance is implemented through annual EHS goal development, tracking and attainment and further supported through VPG’s “EHS Road Map”; a strategic project implementation guidance tool.
VPG’s Corporate Environmental, Health and Safety Policy can be viewed by clicking on the policy title.
VPG facilities continue to strive for EHS excellence through world-recognized accreditations including ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001. Presently, almost half of all VPG manufacturing facilities have achieved ISO 14001 certification while slightly less have attained OHSAS 18001 certification. Striving for 100% certification to both standards is VPG’s goal.
Health and Safety
Employee involvement and hazard awareness is critical to VPG’s health and safety program success. Forming the foundation of this program is VPG’s Job Safety Analysis process, alerting employees of job-specific hazards while forming the basis of job-specific instructions, behavioral checklists, auditing templates and training programs. Coupled with VPG’s Management of Change, Incident Investigation/Root Cause Analysis and EHS Audit programs, VPG has provided its employees and critical stakeholders with a continuous improvement, health and safety environment.
VPG understands its actions today impacts future generations. Reductions in energy usage, waste generated and water consumption continue as annual focal areas through the implementation of corporate and facility-specific goals. Resource management is not only a policy statement, but a critical business objective to ensure long-term viability and success for VPG and the ecosystems in which it operates.
