Region 2 VPP Sites:
"The OSHA National Office is drafting the FY2020 SGE training course schedule. We are currently looking for a VPP Site in Region 2 that would like to host a SGE course. We'd need a room large enough for about 20 people for three consecutive days (TUE-THR). We’d also perform a mock VPP walkthrough of the site with the course participants for an hour or so on the second day. We’ve found that running the class in the 3rd quarter helps increase attendance, since the course will be posted on the OSHA SGE website for several months before the application deadline. We plan to run the class TUE 31 MAR 2020 – THR 02 APR 2020).
In recent years Region 2 has conducted:
2015 SGE Course at IBM in Yorktown Heights, New York
2016 SGE Course at Access Health in Latham, New York
2017 SGE Course at Covanta Essex in Newark, New Jersey
2018 SGE Course at Curtis Lumber in Ballston Spa, New York
2019 SGE Course at OSHA Marlton Area Office in Marlton, New Jersey
If you’d like to add your VPP site’s name to this prestigious list, please respond by FRI 21 JUN 2019. We’d like to announce the location at Region 2 VPPPA’s Summer Safety Forum in Atlantic City on MON 24 JUN 2019. And if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
NOTE: After this year’s class in New Jersey, we’d prefer to hold the 2020 class in New York to provide everyone with local opportunities to attend a SGE Class.
Thank you for participating in the Voluntary Protection Program."
