MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN
Welcome to the Region VI VPPPA Website. I’m happy that you’re here and hope you find what you are looking for. We spend a great deal of time an effort to keep our website current, but if you have some questions, feel free to contact us. The practices and philosophies of OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program lay the infrastructure for the best safety management system known, and when followed, yield the best results of any system ever created. To go along with these practices and philosophies, the VPP Participants Association creates another venue for you to connect with others in your industry. You can communicate and network with worksites within Region VI and around the country through the events, communications network, and conferences coordinated by the Region VI VPP Participants Association....
**Please note that the conference volunteer process shown on the conference page of this website and is a different submission.
Region VI is only as good as the help you provide. Volunteers are essential to the make-up of the Association. If you are interested in having a more "hands on" role with the Association, there is plenty of work to be done behind the scenes. Please complete the form provided and we will notify you on the status of your requested committee appointment. Please understand that VPPPA committee members are appointed at the sole discretion of the Region VI VPPPA Board of Directors. This typically takes place on a quarterly basis, however monthly appointments do occur depending on the immediate need. The committee you request to assist on may be full so please don't be disappointed if your primary request is not fulfilled. As a member of a committee, you are expected to attend scheduled conference calls and/or meetings as needed. Participation is the key to being a part of a VPPPA committee. If you are unable to attend a committee call/meeting you are expected to contact your VPPPA Committee Chair either by e-mail or phone.
