The Voluntary Protection Programs Participants’ Association selected EHS Today to be the exclusive media sponsor of its National VPPPA Conference, held Aug. 26-29 in Nashville, Tenn. EHS Today editors Sandy Smith and Josh Cable met a number of people who had great things to say about VPPPA, the conference and EHS in general.

With a theme of “Setting the Stage for Safety and Health,” VPPPA’s national conference drew approximately 3,000 participants representing over 2,100 member sites and 1 million workers to Nashville. The event’s mission is to “inform, educate and foster a network of safety and health professionals that advance the profession and programs on a global stage.”

VPPPA, a member-based association supporting worksites across the nation in their efforts to receive and maintain OSHA VPP status, is dedicated to cooperative occupational safety, health and environmental management systems. This is the first time in VPPPA’s nearly 30-year history that the organization has selected an official media partner. VPPPA chose EHS Today based on a shared vision of “global safety and health program advancement.”

“We are immensely excited about our partnership with EHS Today,” said VPPPA Executive Director Susan Jordan Sikes. “EHS Today is a perfect media partner for us to reach a wider target audience of safety and health advocates across industries working toward improving workplace safety and health – a perfect match to our mission.”
