Mark Moya wins the 2015 National OSHA SGE of the Year!
The Voluntary Protection Programs (VPP) National Special Government Employee (SGE) Award recognizes an SGE who epitomizes and exhibits exceptional support, time, effort, and action in VPP, setting him/her apart from other SGEs. The person selected is actively involved in volunteer activities that benefit the VPP and its stakeholders, and demonstrates outstanding commitment to the partnership ideals of the VPP. The first annual SGE of the Year was awarded by Assistant Secretary Edwin G. Foulke, Jr. at the 2005 National Conference of the Voluntary Protection Programs Participants’ Association (VPPPA).
Last week, Region VIII’s own Mark Moya received the 2015 National OSHA SGE of the Year Award from Jordan Barab, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health in Grapevine, TX during the 31st Annual VPPPA Conference.
In May, he received the Region VIII SGE of the Year Award which qualified me among the Nation’s 10 finalists.
OSHA’s Regional VIII VPP Manager, Mr. Brad Baptiste official nominated him based on a variety of activities (including courses taught, mentoring activities, outreach, VPP evaluations, and more) based on a 10-point scale. For the first time in his OSHA career, Mark’s nomination was recommended with the full 10 point score.
Mark would of course like to first thank his family for their unconditional love. Secondly he would like to thank Honeywell for their exceptional support of his efforts as well as their commitment to safety and health excellence.
In addition, he would like to thank all the other finalists; it’s truly an honor sharing his passion with professionals like you.
