Youth Safe Summer Job Social Media Campaign
“On April 15th, OSHA, NIOSH, and several safety and health professional organizations will help kick-off a joint #MySafeSummerJob campaign to raise awareness about workplace safety among young workers during five weeks in April and May. Understanding the basics about workplace safety and how to speak-up when something seems dangerous are foundational life skills and fundamental for career-readiness. As young people enter the workplace, we must do all we can to prepare them to succeed. We have collaborated to create a shared website with social media messaging and resources for use by all organizations that would like to support this joint social media campaign.
Each of the five weeks will focus on one theme, and have daily accompanying messages that link to youth-focused resources:
You Have Rights! (Week 1: 4/15 – 4/19/2019)
Every Job has Hazards! (Week 2: 4/22 – 4/26/2019)
Speak-Up! (Week 3: 4/29 – 5/3/2019)
Injuries are Preventable! (Week 4: 5/6 – 5/10/2019)
Safety Takes Teamwork - You Can Get Help! (Week 5: 5/13 – 5/17/2019)

Teen workers are injured at twice the rate of adult workers. Thank you for caring about the safety of workers, and especially young workers who are particularly at risk as they begin their work life. Your outreach to youth, parents, and employers makes a difference!”
