Teen Safety PSA

    As a teen, sometimes it can feel as if your voice doesn’t matter. We believe that you have the power to change the world. Share your voice - speak out for workplace safety. Just follow the steps below to help us create a public video and audio message for teens across the US on their rights in workplaces.

    Step 1

    Make Your Video

    Record yourself on video saying using one of the following prompts:

    Prompt 1
    “I _______ and I have the right to a safe workplace.”

    Prompt 2
    “What’s a job worth to me? It’s worth _________________. But, no job is worth getting hurt – I have the right to be safe at work, it’s the law!”

    Prompt 3
    “Two truths and a lie – ___________________, and teens don’t get hurt at work. The lie is the last – teens actually do get hurt at work. Don’t let it be you – speak-up, ask questions, it’s your right.”

    Details
    Fill in the blank with your current full or part-time job, your planned career/trade, or your dream job. Personalize it by sharing your name and something about yourself, like what state you live in, a hobby, or something special to you. For example “I’m Tina, I live in Maryland but dream of living in Alaska. I work in a restaurant, and I have the right to a safe workplace!” or “My name is Jack and I’m always looking for adventure. I’m training to become a nurse, and I have the right to a safe workplace!”

    Details
    Fill in the blank with what a job is worth to you – it can be silly or serious. Personalize it by sharing more about yourself and what a job is worth to you. For example – “What’s a job worth to me? I don’t necessarily like getting up early on the weekend. But now I’m making money to buy a car, which means at some point I won’t have to wake up so early to catch the bus to work! But, no job is worth getting hurt – I have the right to be safe at work, it’s the law!”

    Details
    Fill in the blank with two fun truths about yourself – they can be silly or serious. Personalize it by sharing more about yourself or share if you’ve gotten hurt at work (but please no company names). For example – “Two truths and a lie, I love watching old movies, I have a cat named “The Earl of Beans” and teens don’t get hurt at work. The lie is the last – teens actually do get hurt at work – I burned my hand pulling dishes out of a commercial dishwasher – steam burns hurt! Don’t let it be you – speak-up, ask questions, it’s your right.”
