In its continuing efforts to educate youth on what it means to be safe at work and what occupational safety and health professionals do every day to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) has launched its 8th annual kids' "Safety-on-the-Job" poster contest.

The contest is open not only to ASSE members' children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, but also to children and schools sponsored by ASSE members. The contest runs from September 19 through Valentine's Day, February 14, 2010, and is open to children aged 5 – 14 with top prizes to be awarded to those in each of the five age groups that best illustrate being safe on the job.

Additionally, the savings bond awards will be presented in ceremonies in Washington, D.C., during the 2010 North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week kick-off events at the U.S. Department of Labor, the U.S. Capitol and the Smithsonian. Go to www.asse.org/naosh09 for highlights of last year’s events and winners. Go to www.asse.org/newsroom for a copy of the contest rules and entry form.
