About Us

Mission Statement

GovSafetySolution’s goal is to compile and organize training and reference information for VA boiler plant personnel.  The primary aim of the site is to improve the accessibility of information needed to specify, test, and maintain safety devices in boiler plants within the VA.  Other areas of the site include general information relevant to boiler plant operations.


-"Keep it Safe; Keep it Steamin"


Through our field experience and experience with VA Documents, we noticed informational gaps and needs at the individual boiler plant level.  GovSafetySoutions supports these areas by providing:

  • Easy access to organized and relevant VA documents available on the TIL.
  • New publications to address knowledge gaps noted in most boiler plant personnel.
  • Improved communication between boiler plant personnel across the VA system with a dedicated forum.
  • Use of online calculators that are industry specific to allow the non-engineer to “double check” calculations.
