We would like to acknowledge all our sources for the training provided here on the website. Please check out the websites for all these amazing sources for more information on their training materials.
In particular, the training provided here would not have been possible had it not been inspired by an amazing network of educators all focused on providing young worker safety and health education. In particular, I would like to personally thank Diane Bush with the Labor Occupational Health Program at U.C. Berkeley and Mary Miller, RN, MN, Occupational Nurse Consultant with the Department of Labor and Industries in Washington for being mentors and leaders in the field of young worker safety and health. Your guidance has helped tremendously to encourage our outreach in the State of Georgia. Additionally, I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Dr. Derek G. Shendell, D. Env, MPH, Amy G. Lewis, MPH, and Sarah W. Kelly, MPH with the Rutgers School of Public Health and the New Jersey Safe Schools Program to conduct research for cosmetology safety and health training. Additioinally, I would like to thank Dede Montgomery, MS, CIH with Oregon Healthy Workforce Center, Dr. Letitia Davis, Director of Occupational Health Surveillance Program in Massachusetts, and Steven Hecker for providing advice, support, and guidance for young worker safety and health training development.
