Keeping Teen Workers Safe Campaign
Region 2 VPP Sites:
"Next week, November 18 – 22, 2019, OSHA will be using its social media platforms to share messaging on workplace safety and health for teens who will be employed over the holiday season. The theme for the week-long campaign is “Keeping teen workers safe is everyone’s job!”
Attached is a social media tool kit that contains example social media posts, including hashtags, and a set of images geared toward teens, employers, parents, and educators for your consideration and use in supporting this effort. Images, including additional graphics pulled from our website and related publications, are also available here: https://app.box.com/s/tkbfln3mahfdik4tpc3ye6uqom6l6gu1.
There are a number of ways you can get involved:
Follow us as we share posts and information through our social media platforms. You can find us as @OSHA_DOL for Twitter and @departmentoflabor for Facebook.
Follow a campaign organizer, CareerSafe, who can be found on Twitter as @CareerSafe and on Facebook as CareerSafe Online.
Retweet or share our posts on your page or feed.
Respond or comment using #KeepTeenWorkersSafe or #KeepWorkersSafe.
Review the social media posts in the attached toolkit, then make them your own, originate the messages from your account, and use #KeepTeenWorkersSafe or #KeepWorkersSafe in your posts.
Whether or not you are able to participate by sharing posts through the week, please show your support by posting the following message on Wednesday, November 20, 2019.
