VPPPA is committed to highlighting and rewarding those individuals, sites and companies that enhance the field of occupational safety and health and the environment.
Congratulations to the 2012 VPPPA Award Winners for the following categories:
2012 VPPPA Safety & Health Achievement Program
The VPPPA Safety and Health Achievement Program was created in 1997 to formally recognize the contributions of employees at VPPPA member sites to the field of safety, health and environmental program management. The program is an opportunity for hourly, non-safety and health professionals to be recognized for their knowledge of safety and health issues and outreach activities at their worksite and in the community.
In 2012, three individuals were honored with the VPPPA Safety & Health Achievement Award at the 28th Annual National VPPPA Conference in Anaheim, CA.
