Keeping Safe at Your Work Should Always Be in Play

Safety is something that happens between your ears, not something you hold in your hands.

Competition season is heating up, and all roads lead to the SkillsUSA Cham- pionships in Louisville, Ky., this June. As you plot your path toward a gold medal, don’t let safety skills (or the lack thereof) become an obstacle.

Each SkillsUSA competition has its own specific rules and safety guidelines. That said, there are plenty of basic safety precau- tions that fit within any workplace.

As a class, identify some of those basic safety skills. In this age of abundant distractions, what are some of the most important safety-related traits students should be working to develop?

SkillsUSA has joined with CareerSafe to provide students with even more detailed online safety training that’s authorized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Completing the course gets you an industry-recognized credential that shows potential employers you take your career seriously.
