Today, VPP is a discretionary program that OSHA can eliminate or defund at any time. Safety is a nonpartisan issue, and the VPP Act will help the program remain a critical part of America’s workforce for generations to come, by making it a permanent part of OSHA. The Act grants VPP a line item in OSHA’s budget. Currently, program funding is through “Compliance Assistance – Federal,” alongside other cooperative initiatives. This legislation maintains the existing VPP process and ensures its continued success by codifying it and letting Congress control its funding directly.
