The Voluntary Protection Programs Participants’ Association has issued the 2001 version of the "Directory of Best Practices". The directory lists companies — and individual site contacts — that were noted for their outstanding best practices in OSHA and Department of Energy VPP evaluation reports.

Site contacts have agreed to take calls, etc. from those interested in more information about their particular areas of expertise — including incident investigation, ergonomics, incentive programs, process safety management, and training.

Copies can be purchased online at or by calling (703) 761-1146. The directory is $25 for non-members; VPPPA members receive one free copy, with additional copies $15 each.
