Full, Associate and International Associate Dues

Annual dues for FullAssociate, and International Associate membership are determined by the number of employees, excluding contractors, at each facility.

Full Membership is applicable to sites currently approved in OSHA, DOE or state-plan-state VPP. Annual dues are based on the number of employees covered under OSHA or DOE jurisdiction (excluding contractors) at each facility (see table below).

VPP Mobile Workforce Demonstration for Construction sites can join VPPPA as Full (if VPP-approved) or Associate (if pursuing VPP) members. The number of employees is based on the number of employees reported for the OSHA Designated Geographic Area (DGA) or listed on OSHA's 300 Log, respectively.

Associate Membership is applicable to worksites, corporate offices or educational institutions pursuing OSHA, DOE or state-plan-state VPP approval or looking to improve their safety and health management systems. Corporate offices may join as an Associate member if they do not have any worksites that are currently in VPP. Educational institutions may qualify for Associate membership by cooperatively working with governmental agencies to improve worker safety and health. Annual dues are half of Full membership dues (see table below).

International Associate Membership is for a worksite outside of the U.S. and its territories pursuing the elements of VPP or a similar occupational safety and health excellence program. Annual dues are half of Full membership dues (see table below).

Use the table below to determine what dues for your site would be, based on the number of employees:
