VPPPAThe Voluntary Protection Programs Participants’ Association (VPPPA), has added Courtney Malveaux as its government affairs counsel.

According to the organization, Malveaux, a Richmond attorney, will be taking the lead in the organization’s efforts to build state and federal support for OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Programs. He previously served as Virginia’s Labor Commissioner and is the immediate past president of the National Association of Government Labor Officials (NAGLO). Currently, he serves on Virginia’s Safety and Health Codes Board, which implements OSHA policies.

“We are excited to bring Courtney Malveaux into this lead role for our organization,” said VPPPA Chairperson Mike Maddox. “Mr. Malveaux brings a breadth of experience on OSHA issues, but more importantly, he understands how to leverage vital partnerships with business leaders, policymakers and other associations.  We look forward to having a greater impact at the federal and state level.”

VPPPA is a nonprofit, member-based association dedicated to cooperative occupational safety, health and environmental management systems. It includes more than 2,300 companies and worksites that have achieved VPP approval or are in the process of applying to OSHA’s or the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Voluntary Protection Program (VPP).
