We can, however, strengthen our efforts to eliminate workplace fatalities. The young people honored at the O[yes] video screening and awards ceremony do give us hope. They get it. Many entered the contest because they like to make videos and in hopes of winning a cash prize. After hearing them speak and meeting with them, we have no doubt that they also understand and share the commitment that we have, of making jobs safe for all workers. That in itself makes this contest a success!
Thanks to the student producers, supporters, families and teachers who joined O[yes] on Saturday. A special thanks, as well, to all of the sponsors – it couldn’t have happened without you! Watch all of the video finalists. Read the press release. See photos on the O[yes] Facebook page. Contact us if you’d like to join our effort.
