May is Safe Jobs for Youth Month


Did you know May is Safe Jobs 4 Youth Month? In the US, workers under 25 are almost twice as likely to be injured at work compared to older workers.

Young workers often are unaware of their rights and protections on the job, and less likely to speak up and ask questions if they have concerns. Know your rights. Protect your health.

May 3-7, 2021 National Safety Stand-Down Week - Help Prevent Workplace Fall Prevention



May 3-7, 2021 is OSHA's National Safety Stand-Down Week.

Fatalities caused by falls from elevation continue to be a leading cause of death for construction employees, accounting for 401 of the 1,061 construction fatalities recorded in 2019 (BLS data). Those deaths were preventable. The National Safety Stand-Down raises fall hazard awareness across the country in an effort to stop fall fatalities and injuries.

A Safety Stand-Down is a voluntary event for employers to talk directly to employees about safety. Any workplace can hold a stand-down by taking a break to focus on "Fall Hazards" and reinforcing the importance of "Fall Prevention". Employers of companies not exposed to fall hazards, can also use this opportunity to have a conversation with employees about the other job hazards they face, protective methods, and the company's safety policies and goals. It can also be an opportunity for employees to talk to management about fall and other job hazards they see.

Workers Memorial Day April 28, 2021


Our mission is to help save lives with every safety training class we conduct. I hope you will join us in honoring those who've lost their lives on the job.

OSHA - Every year, on April 28, the nation recognizes Workers Memorial Day. This is the day we pay our respects to those who lost their lives on the job, and recognize the impact these tragic losses have on families, co-workers, and communities. This year, we also recognize that more than a year into the pandemic, every day essential workers, many of whom are people of color and immigrants, have put their lives on the line during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many were sickened or died as a result of just going to work - for simply doing what they had to do to support their families. They were healthcare workers, grocery workers, meatpackers, nurses, delivery drivers, farmworkers, law enforcement officers, teachers, and sanitation workers. We remember and honor every worker who has lost their life to largely preventable fatal injuries and illnesses, and we commit ourselves to fight to make sure that others do not suffer the same terrible fate.

Event Name: Department of Labor's Workers Memorial Day Program
Date: Wednesday, April 28, 2021
Time: 2:00 pm ET
Event Type: Virtual Event via YouTube
Event open to: General public
Description: The event will honor working people who lost their lives on the job, and acknowledge the families, friends, and coworkers who grieve their loss.
