The Labor Occupational Health Program (LOHP) once again helped coordinate a statewide annual public awareness campaign designed to highlight the importance of preventing teen injuries on the job. Funded by the California Commission on Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation, the campaign helps raise community awareness about child labor law protections and workplace health and safety rights and responsibilities. The campaign includes statewide distribution of the winning teen designed poster (this year designed by Venice Faye E. Torres, of Channel Islands High School in Oxnard, CA), as well as a social media campaign, a video PSA contest, and distribution of resource materials for educators.
