2004 - 12/06/04 - [VPP Update]

December 6, 2004

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is pleased announce a new benefit for active Special Government Employees (SGE)*. SGEs can now waive the cost for courses offered at the OSHA Training Institute (OTI).

This exciting new benefit, effective January 3, 2005, will allow active SGEs the opportunity to further enhance their safety and health knowledge while continuing to assist OSHA with improving worker safety and health in America's workplaces.

To take advantage of this new benefit, interested SGEs must contact the National SGE Coordinator. The registration process is simple, an SGE should:

  1. View the OTI Searchable Schedule for a complete list of available courses. The course listing will indicate the number of seats available.
  2. Make course selection and note course number; course title; and date offered.
  3. Forward course information for registration to the National SGE Coordinator at 202-693-2213.
  4. The National SGE Coordinator will process the SGE course registration through OTI. An email notification will be sent directly to the SGE confirming his/her slots for the selected course. (NOTE: Travel arrangements should not be made until email confirmation is received.)

We look forward to SGEs taking advantage of this new educational opportunity and SGE incentive. Should you have questions or concerns, please contact the SGE Coordinator at 202-693-2213.

* The term "active SGE" refers to an SGE: 1) whose term of appointment has not expired; and 2) who has participated on one or more VPP Onsite Evaluations since his/her initial appointment.
