Region V


Welcome to   Region V VPPPA



The Voluntary Protection Program Participation Association, Inc., the Premier Global Safety and Health Organization is dedicated to cooperative occupational safety, health and environmental management systems. VPPPA is a member-based association, supporting worksites across the U.S. in their efforts to receive and maintain VPP status. For over two decades, the association has provided its members a direct link to OSHA, DOE and similar agencies within state-plan states and continues to offer a support network for participants from a wide variety of industries. The association works closely with OSHA, OSHA state-plan states, DOE and the Department of Defense (DOD) in the development and implementation of cooperative programs within the agencies.




Our Mission is to be a leader in Health and Safety excellence through cooperation among communities, workers, industries and government.


Region V VPPPA will strive to ensure the management system is effectively communicated to those who participate. This can be accomplished through outreach efforts including mentoring, annual conferences and communication efforts with the National VPPPA. 


Provide companies with services, programs and opportunities to strengthen and improve health, environment and safety.
