OSHA encourages techies to come up with tool for youth

OSHA is encouraging developers, students, and “anyone else with a little tech savvy and creativity” to participate in its Workplace Safety and Health Challenge. The goal is to design a tool that demonstrates the importance of recognizing and preventing hazards by helping young people understand their rights in the workplace.

Submissions may be designed for Internet browsers, smartphones, feature phones, and social media, or as a Windows or Macintosh application. The deadline is November 30. Cash prizes will be awarded.

“New technologies have the promise of making our safety and health resources even more accessible for workers and employers,” said OSHA Administrator Dr. David Michaels. He says successful proposals could take many forms, such as interactive and informative games or data visualization.

Each entry should meet two objectives: (1) demonstrate the importance of knowing about workplace safety and health hazards, and (2) help individuals understand their rights in the workplace. The panel of judges will include Labor Secretary Hilda L. Solis and the co-hosts of the Discovery Channel show Myth Busters, Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman.
