Speaker Notes:

VPP for Construction (VPPC) - was designed to meet the unique needs of the construction industry (short-term, high-hazard worksites)

Unique aspects such as mobile workforces, short-term construction projects and changing conditions on construction sites made applying for and maintaining the requirements for traditional VPP overly difficult for the construction industry.

Traditional site- based VPP does not fit the needs of all types of construction projects, General contractors, and sub-contractors.

The new proposal VPP for Construction, announced in the Federal Register in August, 2004 introduces a new concept of three levels of participation:

Three levels:

  • Corporate
  • Division/Business Unit
  • Site

The proposal was open for 90 days for public comments:

  • 18 organizations officially commented
  • 14 Commentators generally supported proposal
  • 4 Commentators generally did not support proposal
