OSHA Promotes Workplace Safety In New Public Service Announcements
Former Red Bulls Soccer Star Giovanni Savarese Featured in Announcement

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) today announced new radio and television public service announcements (PSAs) urging employees to work safe. The PSAs, to be unveiled tomorrow, feature former New York Red Bulls soccer star Giovanni Savarese.

The 30-second and 15-second television PSAs in English and Spanish feature Venezuelan-native Savarese, the all-time leading scorer for Major League Soccer's Red Bulls. The PSA provides information on how to contact OSHA about issues related to workplace safety and health through its Web site and a toll-free number.

PSA filming took place at Giants Stadium at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, N.J., home for the Red Bulls. Savarese, now retired, is the team's director of youth soccer and player development.

Thirty-second and 15-second radio PSAs in English and Spanish are also available for downloading from OSHA's Web site at http://www.osha.gov/dcsp/compliance_assistance/spanish/savarese_spanish_psa.html
