In 2013, the VPP Hanford Site Champions committee was recognized at the VPPPA National Conference with the VPP Outreach Award.
The VPP Hanford Site Champions committee provides support and assistance to Hanford Projects and Companies as they pursue and/or maintain VPP recognition. Committee participation and involvement provides the vehicle for information exchange and for the development and enhancement of VPP activities for continuous improvement of safety and health. The Hanford Site Champions Committee brings contractors (companies) together offering a free exchange of information and improvements. This has been well established within the individual companies represented by the committee. It is a unique setting in which competing companies are working together along with the regulator to improve the safe performance of work and the Safety & Health of Hanford site personnel as well as protecting the public and the environment.
