This alliance established a collaborative relationship between the OSHA Omaha Office and the Omaha Public Schools (OPS) - Career Center, to provide young workers exposure to occupational safety and health concepts, requirements, and best practices. This alliance also affords students of the Career Center - Construction Academy the opportunity to obtain an OSHA 10-Hour Construction Outreach card, as well as industry recognition, access to multiple safety training resources, and internship opportunities.

V. Upcoming Milestones
This alliance has led to the development of two new “Young Worker” focused alliances. Through the Nebraska Department of Education, the Omaha Area Office has developed alliances with the NDE – Industrial, Manufacturing, and Engineering Sciences program as well as the SkillsUSA – Nebraska program.
We hope to continue this alliance until the Career Center faculty are able to complete the OSHA 500 Trainer Course for Construction Outreach. We are currently scheduled to provide three one-hour OSHA/safety and health “overviews” to students of other Career Center programs and would like to see one or more of these develop into 10-Hour training programs as well. Ideally, we could provide one 10-Hr. Construction course in the fall and one 10-Hr. General Industry course in the spring, for students of the Career Center.
