Official VPP Logo

Use of the Voluntary Protection Programs Logo

OSHA strives to provide opportunities for employers and employees to work cooperatively with the agency to address and improve workplace safety and health issues. One opportunity is through the OSHA Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP). VPP is OSHA's premiere recognition program designed to recognize worksites with comprehensive safety and health management systems that incorporate strong management commitment and meaningful, active employee involvement. VPP is open to qualified private and public sector employers in all industries where OSHA has jurisdiction.

The VPP logo is the property of OSHA and is not available for general use. Since the logo was developed to help identify and promote the VPP, OSHA must ensure that the use of the logo remains consistent and does not diminish program integrity.

The logo reflects that a product was developed as part of the OSHA VPP for informational purposes only. Use of the logo does not imply official agency approval by either OSHA or the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) and should not be construed as an endorsement of the entity, its products or services.

Use of the VPP logo is mainly reserved for OSHA and active VPP participants. The logo may be used by aspiring VPP applicants if used in the proper context, e.g., used in conjunction with language that clearly indicates the applicant is not an active VPP participant, e.g., "Working Toward VPP" or other similar phrase.
