    3. Alliance Overview and Goals

      The OSHA and CareerSafe Alliance provides youth, ages 16 to 24, educators, and administrators with information and access to resources on the most common hazards encountered by new workers. Alliance aims to raise awareness of the foundational occupational safety and health (OSH) competencies and training needs of youth workers among educators and employers, to help forge innovative solutions for enhancing OSH training in career education, and to engage these workers in conversations about the safety and health issues most impacting them. Alliance participants collaborate to develop resources, tools, and outreach messaging for OSHA staff, CareerSafe and its network, Career and Technical Student Organizations, Career and Technical Education Administrators and Instructors, youth workers, and employers on foundational OSH competencies that can be integrated into their efforts to provide skills training to youth workers who are in or will enter the workforce.
