General Electric Aviation Center: Injury-Free Four Years and Counting

OSHA has certified General Electric Aviation Customer Training Services in Springdale, Ohio as a Voluntary Protection Programs "star" site. The company's Customer Technical Education Center (CTEC), employing 49 people, has had zero OSHA-recordable injury or illness incidents during the past four years.

CTEC's instructors and administrative support staff design, develop and deliver training programs to students from around the world. The facility has more than 80,000 square feet of space, housing 14 classrooms, a small auditorium, a cafeteria, office space, and 27 bays equipped with lifts, hoists, and tooling for major engine handling. Engines and thrust reversers are available for hands-on training.

Richard T. Gilgrist, director of OSHA's area office in Cincinnati, presented the company with a VPP star flag and plaque during the ceremony. "General Electric Aviation Customer Training Services has demonstrated an excellent record in workplace safety and health management," Gilgrist said. "Its outstanding efforts include management commitment to safety and health, as well as employee involvement in safety and health programs."

OSHA's star designation is the highest level of recognition that an employer can achieve in the VPP. Designed for worksites with comprehensive, successful safety and health programs, the VPP is open to all industries and to employers with injury rates below their respective industries' national averages. Nationwide, more than 1,860 worksites have earned entry into the voluntary programs.
