StaySafe” just like more than 4,000 others who made the same pledge on NWYSD in 2012.

Students will also have an opportunity to participate in interactive safety games and win great prizes that will further teach the importance of young worker safety training. In addition, students and teachers will have the opportunity to gather valuable safety materials and ask experienced CareerSafe staff about safety-related questions and concerns.
