New: DOE-STD-1232-2019, U.S. Department of Energy Voluntary Protection Program Volume 1 - 4

This Department of Energy (DOE) Standard is approved for use by all DOE Components and their contractors. Originating on January 26, 1994, DOE Voluntary Protection Program (VPP) encourages and recognizes excellence in occupational safety and health protection. This program parallels the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) VPP. DOE designed DOE VPP to apply to all contractors in the DOE complex, including production facilities, laboratories, subcontractors, and support organizations. DOE contractors are not required to participate in DOE VPP. In keeping with OSHA and DOE VPP philosophy, participation is strictly voluntary. Additionally, participants may withdraw from the program at any time.
