The Department of Energy Voluntary Protection Program (DOE-VPP) promotes
safety and health excellence through cooperative efforts among labor,
management, and government at the Department of Energy (DOE) contractor sites.
DOE has also formed partnerships with other Federal agencies and the private
sector for both advancing and sharing its Voluntary Protection Program (VPP)
experiences and preparing for program challenges in the next century.
The Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) recognize employers and workers in the private industry and federal agencies who have implemented effective safety and health management systems and maintain injury and illness rates below national Bureau of Labor Statistics averages for their respective industries.
A DOE "Star Site" has been certified by DOE headquarters as meeting the standards of the program, and they are entitled to fly a Star Site flag.
