NIOSH Safety Matters Initative needs YOUR Help

Posted: Oct 09, 2018

Join an informational webinar on Monday, October 15th from 11:30am-12:15pm to learn how you can help with implementation of the NIOSH Safety Matters curriculum. Safety Matters is an initiative to raise awareness among young people about workplace safety and health and to provide an understanding of the skills they need to become active participants in creating safe and healthy work environments.  The time commitment is minimal and the reward of influencing young workers on safe behaviors goes without saying.

MAP ERC has provided a grant to the AIHA Rocky Mountain Chapter to do a pilot study in which safety professionals will assist in delivering content in their communities. The goal is to conduct six presentations to youth by April 2019. Interested in participating or learning more?  The webinar will discuss a grassroots approach to bringing the Safety Matters curriculum to various communities in Colorado and Wyoming and how you can become a part of the approach.
