OSHA Renews Alliance to Provide Training to Young Workers
OSHA Area Director Diego Alvarado Jr. and David L. Carrasco Job Corps Center Director Jorge E. Pedroza renew an alliance focused on El Paso’s young workers.
EL PASO, TX – The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the David L. Carrasco Job Corps Center have renewed an alliance to provide young workers in El Paso with information, guidance, and training to enhance the center’s health and safety culture.
The three-year alliance will renew a commitment to promote the understanding of workplace safety and health rights, and responsibilities of workers and employers. The alliance allows the Center to expand and enhance its training curriculum to provide fundamental safety and health awareness to students in and around El Paso as they embark on their careers.
“Job Corps has been an excellent partner with OSHA, communicating safety and health information to their staff and students, and supporting workplace safety,” said OSHA El Paso Area Director Diego Alvarado Jr. “By recommitting to both our efforts, we are strengthening our ability to promote workplace safety and health to a new generation of workers.”
Through its Alliance Program, OSHA works with businesses, trade associations, unions, consulates, professional organizations, faith- and community-based organizations, and educational institutions to prevent workplace fatalities, injuries, and illnesses. For details on OSHA partnerships and alliances, please call OSHA’s toll-free hotline 800-321-OSHA (6742) or OSHA’s El Paso Area Office at 915-534-6251.
