In an effort to bring education, business, industry and government together to promote teen worker safety, the Oklahoma Department of Labor,
in partnership with the Oklahoma Safety Council, developed a statewide student video contest called “Speak Out for Workplace Safety.”
The video contest is designed to reach out and teach students about the youth employment laws.
