Safety And Health Achievement Program Winners

The VPPPA Safety & Health Achievement Program offers a unique recognition of the association’s members, which is a vital aspect in maintaining the momentum of employee involvement in a safe and healthy work environment. The Voluntary Protection Programs could not be a success without workers, so the association created the award to recognize hourly and non-managerial workers who take the initiative to learn and apply safety and health best practices.

Candidates are required to demonstrate their safety and health knowledge and training by completing the program criteria as well as a safety and health workbook that tests their familiarity with workplace safety and health requirements, accident investigations and VPP procedures and requirements.
