Alliance description: The Job Corps program provides academic education classes and vocational training courses to young adults in a residential, tuition-free program. The alliance signed Nov. 2 will renew a commitment to increase access to material and knowledge that aims to promote understanding of the workplace safety and health rights and responsibilities of workers and employers. This renewed alliance allows the center to expand and enhance its training curriculum to provide fundamental safety and health awareness to students in and around the El Paso area who are embarking on careers.

Duration: One year

Quote: "Since our alliance began more than seven years ago, Job Corps has been an excellent partner of the agency, communicating safety and health information to their staff and students and supporting OSHA's initiatives for workplace safety," said Diego Alvarado Jr., OSHA's area director in El Paso. "By recommitting to our collaborative efforts, we strengthen our ability to promote workplace safety and health to a new generation of workers between the ages of 16 and 24."

Information: 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.
