All injuries and workplace illnesses are preventable.
The award-winning DuPont STOP™ (Safety Training Observation Program) provides a path to workplace safety excellence by making safe behavior and workplace conditions part of the work culture, thus helping to prevent incidents and injuries.

STOP™ programs use a combination of methods to give people the information, skills and willingness to work more safely. The programs feature a three-part approach:

• Individual self-study using workbooks to introduce the basic concepts and begin safety skill development.
• Field or application activities to practice what they’ve learned in their own work areas.
• Group meetings during which participants view a video, discuss what they have learned and consider how it can be applied.
