TOSHA knows that because you volunteered for this program, you have a great deal of faith in what the Voluntary Protection Program stands for. We try to make the review process as convenient as possible, but should you decide against what is necessary to meet the VPP requirements, you have the option of withdrawing your application rather than having it denied.
If you choose to withdraw or you are not recommended for approval, you still must correct any hazards the team identifies. Also, TOSHA will return your application and discard all notes except for one complete set. This set is retained for a year in case you have further questions. After one year it is discarded in its entirety. While these documents are in our possession, they are only internal working documents with confidentiality protected.
