Dear Colleagues:

On December 5-7, 2016, the Career Pathways and Health Literacy groups will host a special activity on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s 10-hour Outreach Training Program in general industry, construction, or maritime safety. This is a voluntary program and students who receive the 10-hour Outreach card have an advantage in the workplace because some cities and states require the 10-hour along with many employers.

Educators and program managers in career pathways (CP) programs can learn more about OSHA and how to effectively integrate workplace safety education curricula into CP programs.

The activity kicks off with a webinar on Monday, December 5th, from 3-4 PM (ET).

Following the webinar, the special activity will continue with an online discussion on how to integrate OSHA materials into adult education classrooms and explore Workplace Safety, a freely available teaching resource for students at the Adult Secondary Education (ASE level).

This event will include three guest facilitators: Annette Braam, Directorate of Training and Education for OSHA (Annette, what internet link would be best?), and Emily Doherty, Senior Director for Careers in Manufacturing Programs at the Jane Addams Resource Corporation.  Cynthia Peters, editor of World Education, Inc’s The Change Agent, will also participate and provide their insights during the event

I'm including the Postsecondary Completion group because you might find this of interest, too.
