The agency is opening a docket for the public to submit documents and comments on the VPP.

OSHA’s VPP recognizes and rewards employers in private industry and federal agencies that have implemented effective safety and health management systems. Eligible employers must maintain injury and illness rates below national averages for their sectors.

The agency said it is looking for information on the future direction of the programs. According to a release, “OSHA is seeking to reshape the VPP so that it continues to represent safety and health excellence, leverages partner resources, further recognizes the successes of long-term participants, and support small program growth.”

To comment on OSHA’s VPP programs, go to the Federal eRulemaking Portal (https://www.regulations.gov/) and use Docket No. OSHA-2017-0009. The docket will remain open until Sept. 15, 2017.
