Cavalcade of Risk #101 – Andrew of Ozrisk hosts this week’s edition of Cavalcade of Risk – check it out.
In other news this week, Roberto Ceniceros posts about making safety more fun than a workplace prank – a video contest sponsored by the Oregon Young Worker Health & Safety Coalition. The Coalition launched its second annual “Save a friend. Work safe” video contest, which invited Oregon high school students to submit a 45-second video about young worker safety on the job. Entries are competing for prizes ranging from $300 to $500, with matching amounts for each winner’s school. There were 50 entries this year, from which 7 finalists were chosen. Help pick the winner – log in to YouTube and view and rate the 7 finalists.
We’re all for creative ways to raise the issue of workplace safety with young workers. Also see Oregon’s Young Employee Safety page – O[yes]. The mission of O[yes] is “…to prevent young worker injuries and fatalities. O[yes] educates its constituency of young workers, educators, employers, parents and labor and trade associations through outreach, advocacy and sharing of resources. We pool our expertise, leverage resources and recognize the diversity and knowledge of our partners and the voice of young workers.
