The GE Healthcare plant is located in Rensselaer Technology Park. The plant produces the detectors that are at the heart of the company’s digital X-ray mammography equipment. For more information, please see the links below:



What is VPP Corporate?

VPP corporate is designed for corporate applicants, who demonstrate a strong commitment to employee safety and health and VPP. These applicants, typically large corporations or Federal Agencies, have adopted VPP on a large scale for protecting the safety and health of its employees. VPP corporate applicants must have established, standardized corporate-level safety and health management systems, effectively implemented organization-wide as well as internal audit/screening processes that evaluate their facilities for safety and health performance. Under VPP corporate, streamlined processes have been established to eliminate these redundancies and expand VPP participation for corporate applicants in a more efficient manner.

Current participants are:

- Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc.

- Morton Salt Corporation

- Delta Air Lines

- General Electric Company

- Parsons Corporation


We currently need two (2) SGE volunteers for this VPP Team. If you are interested, please respond directly to Greta via email. ( Olsson.Greta@dol.gov )

Thank you for your service as Special Government Employees.
