Employee involvement key to safety success at Army depot

Letterkenny Army Depot (LEAD) has joined OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP). Depot Commander Colonel Victor S. Hagan was awarded the VPP certificate, plaque, and flag by Harrisburg Area Director Kevin Klip in a late August ceremony.

Hagan told the assembled soldiers, “You in this room are the real change agents. You got engaged, took charge, made this program your own, and encouraged your coworkers.”

The site’s VPP journey began in 2007 when leaders recognized the value of shifting from a safety program to a comprehensive safety and health management system. A VPP senior advisory board was supported by subcommittees to encourage participation depotwide.

Hagan points to excellent results. “Since beginning this journey in 2007 the accident rate has dropped 34 percent. That’s miraculous … truly a feat within itself.” Safety personnel say that instead of being pushed down the chain, safety is now owned by employees at all levels.

The LEAD is involved with maintenance, modification, storage, and demilitarization operations on tactical missiles and ammunition.
