Region 2 VPP Sites:
"During Week Three of the #MySafeSummerJob ( https://mysafesummerjob.org )campaign, join OSHA in empowering youth to "Speak-Up!" in their workplaces. Young workers should be encouraged to ask questions about their job and their workplace, and they should feel confident about raising safety and health concerns with a co-worker or manager. Young workers and new workers bring "fresh eyes" to a job, and may notice workplace hazards that others overlook. This week, share messaging that encourages youth to speak up if they have a question, and report any concerns they have to a supervisor or other trusted adult.
#MySafeSummerJob includes campaign materials for use by any organization in helping us spread the word about youth safety and health. Youth can engage by answering "How do you plan to stay safe at your job this summer?" using the hashtag #MySafeSummerJob. Also available is a blog post from Miles Cleveland of National COSH on the theme that can be shared.
