An Interview with Senator Mike Enzi
"On February 26–27, VPPPA members gathered on Capitol Hill to educate members of Congress about the importance of workplace safety and health. The VPP Act (S.904) grants VPP its own line item in OSHA’s budget. VPP is a small program with a big impact. Currently, the programs are funded 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. Safety knows no political party and it is vital to shine a light on successful government initiatives that promote a constructive and productive dialogue between labor, management and regulators.
VPPPA members had the pleasure of interviewing Senator Mike Enzi of Wyoming. He has been an integral force in the push to codify the VPP Act for many years."
