The OSHA and SkillsUSA Alliance will focus on providing career and technical educators and their students with materials, guidance, and access to training resources that will impact the occupational safety and health of young workers. The Alliance's goals include:
Outreach and communication
- Work with OSHA to provide expertise in developing information for young workers on workplace hazard recognition and prevention and to provide expertise in developing ways of communicating such information (e.g. print and electronic media, on-line forums, lesson plans, electronic assistance tools and OSHA's and SkillsUSA's web sites) to educators, employers and young workers.
- Speak, exhibit, or appear at OSHA's and SkillsUSA's conferences state and chapter events, such the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference and SkillsUSA Championships.
- Work with other Alliance Program participants on specific issues and projects regarding young workers that are addressed and developed through the Alliance Program.
- Encourage SkillsUSA to build relationships with OSHA's Regional and Area Offices and other Career Technical Student Organizations to address young worker safety and health issues.
Promoting the national dialogue on workplace safety and health
- Convene or participate in forums, round table discussions, or stakeholder meetings on young worker safety and health issues to help forge innovative solutions in the workplace.
