What is Safety in Paradise?
Safety in Paradise is a free, confidential service provided by the University of the Virgin Islands Community Engagement and Lifelong Learning (UVICELL). Although funded primarily through Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the service is independent of federal or local OSHA enforcement.
The program addresses immediate problems and offers professional advice and help in maintaining continued, effective worker protection. Employers can find out about potential hazards at their worksites, improve their occupational safety and health management systems and even qualify for a one-year exemption from routine OSHA inspections.
