Note: The Safety & Health Achievement Program is postponed for the 2019 submission year. The Awards Committee is currently reviewing the testing and submission process to have a newer format available for the 2020 submission year.

Whether it is at the worksite or in the community, the VPPPA Safety & Health Achievement Program provides special acknowledgement to non-managerial employees at VPPPA member sites who have taken the initiative to learn and apply safety and health best practices. Candidates are expected to fulfill the program criteria and complete a workbook containing questions on the major elements of workplace safety and health.

The program is geared toward hourly, non safety and health workers at VPPPA member sites. Those certified in safety and health professional fields are not eligible to apply (i.e. - Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH), Professional Engineers (PE) and Certified Safety Professionals (CSP)).
