OSHA Announces Second Meeting on Strengthening VPP

It will take place 1-4 p.m. Aug. 28 in New Orleans. The agency wants stakeholders to provide new ideas on three subjects: overall VPP process and flow, corporate/long-term participant involvement, and Special Government Employee activities.

OSHA announced Aug. 14 it will host a second public meeting, this time on Aug. 28, on the eve of VPPPA's Safety+ annual conference, to solicit suggestions for growing and strengthening Voluntary Protection Programs. The conference is taking place in New Orleans, mainly at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, and that's where OSHA's meeting will be.

It will include a review of the July 17, 2017, meeting and comments and suggestions from the public on potential avenues for action, according to the OSHA announcement, which explains that OSHA "is seeking to reshape VPP so that it continues to represent safety and health excellence, leverages partner resources, further recognizes the successes of long-term participants, and supports smart program growth."

The agency wants stakeholders to provide new ideas on these three subjects:

  • Overall VPP process and flow
  • Corporate/long-term participant involvement
  • Special Government Employee activities

The meeting will be held from 1-4 p.m. in Great Hall B of the convention center. OSHA asks those wishing to attend to register online by Aug. 23, 2017. The comment period will close Sept. 15.
