Wisconsin youth promote workplace safety
Some young people in Wisconsin are getting an early appreciation for workplace safety, thanks to a program that pairs the Wisconsin Department of Health Service’s Occupational Health Surveillance (OHS) program with Operation Fresh Start, a non-profit organization that helps at-risk youth obtain educational and job skills.
The youthful participants were tasked with developing a work safety program. Among the products they developed: a safety poster, toolbox talk cards, and a safety manual.
Wisconsin said that knowledge learned and outputs developed during these activities are being shared with other Operation Fresh Start programs throughout Wisconsin.
