Speech given by Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Jordan Barab at the Voluntary Protection Programs Participants' Association Annual Meeting, August 24, 2015.
Thank you for welcoming me once again to the annual VPPPA conference. I always appreciate the positive energy that I find here. This gathering is a great opportunity for exchanging ideas and strategies with fellow participants. It's also a chance for those of us at OSHA to express our appreciation and gratitude for all that you do to keep workers safe and healthy.
