"Job Corps has been an excellent partner with OSHA, communicating safety and health information to their staff and students, and supporting workplace safety," said OSHA Area Director Diego Alvarado Jr. "By recommitting to both our efforts, we are strengthening our ability to promote workplace safety and health to a new generation of workers."

OSHA and the David L.

The alliance also allows the center to expand and enhance its training curriculum.

"By recommitting to both our efforts, we are strengthening our ability to promote workplace safety and health to a new generation of workers."
