California Voluntary Protection Program
DOSH promotes safety and health by recognizing employers who have voluntarily managed outstanding safety and health programs.The California Voluntary Protection Program (Cal/VPP) is designed to recognize employers and their employees who have implemented safety and health programs that effectively prevent and control occupational hazards. These programs go beyond minimal Cal/OSHA standards and provide the best feasible protection at the site.Management commitment and employee participation are key elements in achieving Cal/VPP recognition. Cal/VPP establishments are considered to be leaders in the field of workplace safety and health.Successful applicants approved for participation in Cal/VPP receive State and national recognition and are exempt from Cal/OSHA programmed inspections.Although designed for fixed-site establishments, large construction projects that will be in operation for at least one year may be eligible for Cal/VPP recognition.
SHARP Partnership Program
California's SHARP is designed to meet the Federal OSHA requirements for a Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program (SHARP). Cal/SHARP, is site specific and is offered to all high-hazard employers with either fixed- or mobile-worksites. Applicants that meet the requirements of Cal/SHARP receive recognition and may receive an exemption from programmed inspections by Cal/OSHA Enforcement. Cal/SHARP employer worksites are recognized as worksites expected to have a significantly lower risk for serious accidents than other employer's worksites within the same industry. In turn, this allows Cal/OSHA to focus its programmed inspection efforts on other worksites.
Cal/VPP Construction (for non-fixed sites)
The Cal/VPP Construction Program is designed specifically for employers with non-fixed worksites. Eligible employers with fixed worksites should be encouraged to apply for SHARP or Cal/VPP Star recognition. Cal/VPP Construction companies are considered workplace safety and health leaders within their industry. Individual California worksites under the control of a Cal/VPP Construction employer are recognized as worksites expected to have significantly lower risk for serious accidents than other employer's worksites within the same industry. In turn, this allows Cal/OSHA to focus its programmed inspection efforts on other worksites.
Golden Gate Partnership Program
Golden Gate recognition is site-specific. Your company may be eligible to receive a letter of commendation from the Cal/OSHA Consultation Service if your company requests and receives a Cal/OSHA Consultation on-site visit at one of its worksites, and subsequently meets the qualifications for Golden Gate recognition. Companies qualified for Golden Gate recognition do not receive any kind of exemption, except the traditional exemptions associated with actively working with the Cal/OSHA Consultation Service.
