'Youth @ Work': NIOSH Releases Classroom-Ready Curriculum

NIOSH has released Youth @ Work--Talking Safety, a foundation curriculum in occupational safety and health that the agency says 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, and has been customized for each state and Puerto Rico to address state-specific rules and regulations. The entire booklet, teacher overheads and PowerPoint presentations, student handouts, certificates, a video, and more is downloadable at NIOSH's Web site. The booklet includes instructions for teachers and a step-by-step guide for presenting the material. To access the materials, visit http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/youth@work/.

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
