Best Practice Days/Safety Tips Emails

Best Practice Days

Multiple times during the year, the Department of Labor and Industry VPP Program holds what we call Best Practice Days and Workshops. These are spread throughout the state and include valuable networking with other safety conscience companies, industry professionals, presentations on best practices, regulations, and specific topics.

VPP participants host Best Practice Days at various locations in Virginia throughout the year and are cosponsored by the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry. These events encompass creative safety & health compliance programs, VOSH/OSHA updates, and new and innovative technology. Best Practice Days are free and open to the public. Please look for the announcement of these events on the homepage of the Departments’ home webpage. If you would like to know more about these events, please contact:
