DOL News Release: OSHA to Support Career Expo- March 17 and 18th

I just received this press release from the US Department of Labor stating OSHA's support of this year's Construction Education Foundation of Georgia Career Expo, which is to be held March 17 and March 18 in College Park, Georgia. We are excited that we are working in collaboration with OSHA and other companies and organizations through the Georgia Youth Alliance to participate in this event. I would like to extend a special thanks to Brasfield and Gorrie. This construction company is instrumental in making sure that we will have an authentic area to provide "job-site" orientation and safety briefings to all those in attendance of the event.

I will be tweeting updates during the event using the hashtag #CEFGA. So be on the lookout for info on how we are promoting careers in not only constrution, but safety and health professional careers in the construction industry.
