    The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Region 6 and CareerSafe recognize the value of establishing a collaborative relationship to foster safe and more healthful American workplaces.

    Alliance Activity

    The CareerSafe® program provides presentations at Regional and National conferences throughout the year. A few of the conferences where we have presented in 2011-2012 are listed below:

    National ACTE National SkillsUSA
    National FFA
    The National Career Prep Networks
    The National Career Clusters Institute
    Texas SkillsUSA
    Regional ESC in Texas

    Training and Education

    The CareerSafe® program provides demonstrations on the value added components of providing OSHA Training to youth. Through our outreach activities and national speakers, we have reached out to high school and colleges all across the Nation in an effort to provide the CareerSafe® program to their students.

    Outreach and Communication

    The CareerSafe® program has reached and educated over 393,191 students on OSHA safety standards and regulations since its inception in 2003. Via our network of outreach trainers and public speakers, these numbers continue to increase on a daily basis.

    Promoting the National Dialogue on Workplace Safety and Health

    By reaching students before they enter the workforce, we hope to decrease the incidence rate of fatalities and injuries associated with the youth demographic.

    Promoting collaboration between Educators, Industry, and CareerSafe

    CareerSafe has seen the disconnect between the classroom and the workforce. In an effort to help close the gap, CareerSafe established The National Youth Safety Advisory Committee (NYSAC) which is a collaboration of leaders of Industry, National Youth leadership organizations, Departments of Education, and CareerSafe. The committee goal is to help educate young workers on proper workplace safety in the classroom and in the workforce.

    National Young Worker Safety Day

    The National Young Worker Safety Day was established by CareerSafe on June 21, 2011 to promote workplace safety to the young worker demographic. CareerSafe hosted the National Young Worker Safety Day at the National SkillsUSA conference in Kansas City, MO. With over 6,000 participants, the event was a huge success even generating National media coverage. The event included a national safety pledge signed by over 6,000 student participants, t-shirts, and safety awareness wrist bands. Partnering organizations for the National Young Worker Safety Day were Federal OSHA, CareerSafe, and SkillsUSA.

  4. Results

    The CareerSafe® program has provided OSHA 10-Hour cards to 37,154 completed users from September 1, 2011 to September 1, 2012. More than 41% of the General Industry card recipients are within the area of OSHA Region 6. While only 12% of the Construction Industry cards are going to students within the Region 6 area. This is attributed to the OSHA 10-Hour construction card requirement in a few States.

  5. Upcoming Milestones

    In April of 2012 in an effort to reach as many students as possible, the CareerSafe® Online program brought on two full time CareerSafe® Outreach Educators to help get the word out about the benefits of providing OSHA 10-Hour training to youth 16 to 24 years of age within OSHA Region 6 area. These Outreach Educators are located within the State of Texas in Houston and San Antonio they are available to provide presentations and in-services to teachers and schools to help support the CareerSafe® Online Program.

    This Alliance has concluded as of December 8, 2012. OSHA will continue to conduct outreach efforts with CareerSafe®.
