"NIOSH has a long history of collaboration with the BCSP. This new partnership with the BCSP Foundation allows us to extend our work and share a vision for preparing current and future generations of workers with the knowledge and skills they need to contribute to and benefit from safe, healthy and productive workplaces," said NIOSH Director John Howard, MD.
The partnership between NIOSH and the BCSP Foundation will involve outreach to educators, high school counselors, businesses, labor organizations and trades. NIOSH and the BCSP Foundation will also work together to develop an assessment tool for the online training, analyze student assessment data, and evaluate the effectiveness of the training to increase young workers' safety competence. The joint activities between NIOSH and the BCSP Foundation may contribute to a downstream reduction in injuries among young workers and help ensure the health and well-being of the emerging workforce.
