Region 8 

A Major Benefit

Mentoring is one of the major benefits provided by the VPPPA to its member companies. Associate members and those companies looking to achieve VPP status have a tremendous resource available to them in the form of our network of VPP sites in Region VIII. Our members have a wealth of knowledge that they are happy to share with you in order to help you achieve your goal of safety excellence.

Getting matched up with a mentor is a simple process. Log on to the National VPPPA website at new-window. There you will find a link called “Mentoring Program”. Follow that link to learn more about the mentoring process. To request a formal mentoring match, follow this link here new-window.
