OSHA Seeking Comments on its Voluntary Protection Program

The Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) is seeking comments on modernizing, expanding, and enhancing the Voluntary Protection Program (VPP), which began in 1989. 
Input is requested on the following topics:

  • Aligning the program more closely with recent occupational safety and health management practices and system standards.
  • How the program can contribute to expanding the use and effectiveness of safety and health management systems.
  • Whether and how resources and tools such as special government employees, consensus standards, third-party auditors and other methods could serve to expand the program’s capacity without compromising effectiveness and oversight.
  • Whether particular categories of hazards need special attention in the VPP certification process.

Interested parties may submit comments here. The deadline is April 14, 2023.
