CareerSafe is a safety training program designed by OSHA to provide entry-level workers, particularly high school and college students, with the fundamental safety knowledge needed in the workplace.
CareerSafe for Students
For students, the Careersafe online program is the first of its kind that is interactive and addresses the high-priority safety training needs of young workers.
How It Works:
- A student successfully completes the 10 hour web-based CareerSafe course.
- The student receives a wallet card from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
- The wallet card demonstrates that the student has the fundamental safety knowledge needed in the workplace.
- Young workers develop a safety mindset and acquire marketable skills for a competitive edge.
