1. NIOSH offers Youth@Work: Talking Safety, a foundation curriculum in occupational safety and health. This curriculum is the culmination of many years’ work by a consortium of partners dedicated to reducing occupational injuries and illnesses among youth. This curriculum is meant to be used in a classroom or other group training setting. The entire curriculum includes instructions for teachers and a step by step guide for presenting the material. For details and to download all the curriculum and resources, see http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/talkingsafety/states/ak/.
2. Alaska's Youth Employment and Safety Program is a youth outreach program that aims to teach young people about workplace safety. At no cost to schools, an AKOSH youth trainer conducts safety presentations and training exercises at middle schools and high schools statewide.
