Since 1898, the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry has served its citizens, employers and employees of the Commonwealth. As an executive branch agency under the Secretary of Labor, the Department works with Virginia employers and employees to develop strong occupational safety and health programs and with those who strive to achieve workplace safety and health by offering voluntary protection programs and consultation services. The agency’s compliance activities address safety and health hazards in general industry and construction, and increase workplace safety awareness via special emphasis programs. Through registered apprenticeship, the Department promotes job training opportunities that prepare the skilled workers that employers seek to hire. The agency also administers child labor, minimum wage, and other labor laws. In addition, the Department safeguards life and property by certifying and overseeing the inspection of boilers and pressure vessels.
Our programs and services include Boiler and Pressure Vessel Safety, Labor and Employment Law, Registered Apprenticeship, and Virginia Occupational Safety and Health (VOSH). Within VOSH we ensure safety and health compliance with VOSH Standards and Regulations, provide Consultation services to include training and the Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program, and Virginia Voluntary Protection Programs to include BEST, VPP Challenge and VPP Star.
