  3. Training and Education

    • The CareerSafeŽ program provides free 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 CareerSafeŽ program to their students.
    Outreach and Communication
    • The CareerSafeŽ program has reached and educated over 250,000 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.
  4. Results

    The CareerSafeŽ program has provided over 62,000 OSHA 10-Hour cards to completed users. More than 47% of the General Industry card recipients are within the area of OSHA Region 6. While only 17% 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 of the Northern States.

These State reps are located in specific geographic locations all across the Nation, they are available to provide presentations, and in-services to teachers in schools to help support the CareerSafeŽ Online Program.
