Safety and injury compensation

Our continuous improvement in postal safety performance is due to employee and management collaboration on several efforts, including risk analysis, employee awareness, training and rigorous reporting and analysis. Employee participation and feedback on program effectiveness is a key component. The Postal Service focuses on specific issues such as lifting and related issues, driving skills, and dog-bite awareness. We maintain a number of worksites in the Voluntary Protection Program in cooperation with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
