2017 O[yes] video finalists announced

video-imageIt’s another year – and another Oregon Young Employee Safety (O[yes]) Video Contest. After almost a decade of joining a number of organizations as contest sponsors, it’s great to know that young people continue to create new and different messages to motivate their peers to stay safe at work and speak up about safety.

This year’s group of finalists includes the following video producers, listed below with their school association:

* “Rapaccidents Happen” — Parkrose High School

* “Rewind” — Parkrose High School

* “Safety Doesn’t Judge Age” — North Bend High School

* “Sick Day” — Churchill High School

* “Speak Up” — West Albany High School

* “The Slip Up” — Hood River Valley High School

* “Your Future’s On Its Way” — Southridge High School

Make sure you take a few minutes and watch all of the 90 second video entries on the O[yes] YouTube channel. Read the press release issued by Oregon OSHA.

The top three entries will take home cash prizes ranging from $300 to $500 and will earn a matching amount for their school. O[yes] organizes the contest, which is sponsored by Oregon OSHA, SAIF Corporation, local Oregon chapters of the American Society of Safety Engineers, the Oregon Institute of Occupational Health Sciences at OHSU, Hoffman Construction, Central Oregon Safety & Health Association, the SHARP Alliance, the Construction Safety Summit, SafeBuild Alliance, and The Farm Bureau.

The contest winners will be announced during an awards ceremony to be held later next month in Salem. Those of us from the Institute give a shout out to these students, their mentors and the contest sponsors: all who are taking steps to help prevent injuries to our younger workforce.
