SGEs

Special Government Employees

Qualified volunteers from VPP sites are eligible to participate in the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) Special Government Employee (SGE) program. These volunteers must be approved by OSHA and funded by their companies to participate.

An SGE serves in the capacity of a federal volunteer while he or she is assisting OSHA personnel during VPP onsite evaluations. During the evaluation, an SGE is held to the same ethical and legal standards as a federal or state government employee. In addition to benefiting OSHA by supplementing its VPP onsite evaluation teams, this innovative program gives industry and government an opportunity to work together and share ideas and best practices.

For more information and to apply for SGE training, please visit OSHA's SGE website.
