National Young Worker Safety Day (NYWSD) kicks off Tuesday, June 25, 2013, at 9 a.m. at the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference in Kansas City. As part of the larger campaign, “A Million Safer,” led by CareerSafe, NYWSD is targeted at making a significant and critical impact on decreasing the number of young worker injuries and fatalities in the United States. At the CareerSafe booth (booth C) at SkillsUSA TECHSPO, students and teachers will sign the pledge to “StartSafe. 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.
