Worker Health and Safety

Model Workplaces

How safe are the “model” workplaces in OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program?  A Center investigation found that since 2000, dozens of workers died at sites the agency considers the nation’s safest, and which it exempts from some inspections. Our series reports on the preventable accidents that recur at workplaces lauded for their safety efforts, featuring contributions from our partners in the Investigative News Network and Need To Know on PBS.
