NM OSHA Voluntary Protection Program

Zia Star Voluntary Protection Program

On February 14, 2001 New Mexico OSHA formally adopted the Zia Star voluntary protection program to recognize those work sites that are self-sufficient in identifying and controlling workplace hazards. ZIA Star members successfully protect their employees from fatality, injury and illness by implementing comprehensive and effective workplace safety and health management systems.

The Voluntary Protection Programs Policies and Procedures Manual is available for review. New Mexico applies these policies and procedures only in the general industry sector of the workforce. New Mexico OSHA’s policies differ slightly from the above manual because OHSB only recognizes establishments who meet the highest level of participation described as “Star” members.
