Virginia Occupational Safety & Health Program

Virginia Occupational Safety & Health Program

The Virginia Occupational Safety and Health (VOSH) Program is the Commonwealth’s counterpart to the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

The VOSH Program is responsible for enforcing occupational safety and health laws and regulations in the private and public sectors and also provides free consultative, outreach and training services to encourage and provide assistance to Virginia’s employers to enhance safety and health protections for their employees.

The VOSH Program also issues permits for lead and asbestos abatement projects, conducts inspections and administers the laws affecting emission of these pollutants through the Agency’s Asbestos, Lead and Demolition Notification Program.
