16VAC25-200-100. Enforcement Activity at Voluntary Protection Program Sites.

A. Types of enforcement activity. Two types of enforcement activity trigger additional VPP assessment:

1. Unprogrammed VOSH inspections, which occur in response to all referrals, formal complaints, fatalities, and certain accidents.

2. Other incidents or events, whether or not injuries or illnesses have occurred and whether or not normal enforcement procedures apply to the situation.

B. Site reassessment. VOSH may reassess the site's safety and health management system if there is reason to believe that a serious deficiency exists that would have an impact on the site's continued qualification for VPP.

C. Enforcement personnel. The commissioner shall establish written procedures describing the use of enforcement personnel during onsite evaluations and any limitations placed on their conducting an enforcement inspection at a VPP site.

D. Impact of enforcement activity.

1. If the event that triggers enforcement activity occurs during the time between application and onsite evaluation, the onsite evaluation must be postponed until the enforcement case is closed.

2. If the event that triggers enforcement activity occurs during the onsite evaluation, the onsite evaluation must cease until the enforcement case is closed.
