OSHA Renews Alliance with David L. Carrasco Job Corps Center
The alliance helps to promote worker safety and health for young adults.
OSHA announced in a press release that its El Paso Area Office has renewed an alliance with the David L. Carrasco Job Corps Center. The center provides academic education classes and vocational training courses to young adults in a residential, tuition-free program.
The alliance will renew a commitment to increase access to "material and knowledge that aims to promote understanding of the workplace safety and health rights and responsibilities of workers and employers," according to OSHA.
It will allow the center to expand and enhance its training curriculum over the course of a year.
"Since our alliance began more than seven years ago, Job Corps has been an excellent partner of the agency, communicating safety and health information to their staff and students and supporting OSHA's initiatives for workplace safety," said Diego Alvarado Jr., OSHA's area director in El Paso. "By recommitting to our collaborative efforts, we strengthen our ability to promote workplace safety and health to a new generation of workers between the ages of 16 and 24."
