OSHA holds contest to teach workplace safety

June 7, 2012

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is running a competition to help educate the public about workplace safety. 

Applicants should use publicly available government information (i.e., DOL/OSHA data, NIOSH data, and other online government resources) to create an application or presentation that will educate young workers on the safety and health risks in real work scenarios. 

Submissions should provide tools that demonstrate the importance of knowing about workplace safety and health hazards, and provide tools to understand their rights in the workplace. 

Successful apps could take many different forms, such as: interactive and informative games, social or professional networks, or data visualization. 

Submissions may be designed for internet browsers, smartphones, feature phones, social media platforms, or as native Windows or Macintosh applications. 

A total of four prizes totaling no more than $30,000 will be awarded, including one grand prize, two category prizes, and one people’s choice award prize. A single entry is eligible for winning more than one prize.
