Due February 2nd, 2015 - Students have used original music, special effects, and offbeat characters to promote young worker safety and health. The annual “Speak up. Work safe.” video contest is now open to teens across Oregon. The top three entries will take home cash prizes ranging from $300 to $500 and students will earn a matching amount for their school.

The Oregon Young Employee Safety Coalition is seeking video entries that will inspire teens to do at least one thing differently to stay safe on the job. Your video should inspire your friends – teens who are working (or who will be working) in many different types of jobs – about the importance of speaking up in the workplace. Your film should tie back to the concept: “Speak up. Work safe. Work shouldn’t cost you your future.”

Why is speaking up so important? Because a VitalSmarts, Silent Danger study of more than 1,600 workers, managers, and safety directors found that 93 percent of employees say their workgroup is currently at risk from “accidents waiting to happen” because people are unwilling or believe they are unable to speak up about workplace dangers.

Here are some of the things you should speak up about:
  - When you see people doing something that could get them hurt.
  - When you don’t understand how to do a task.
  - When your boss asks you to do something that you don’t think is safe.
  - When you’re hurt or have an injury.
  - When you have had a “near miss” or a “close call.”
  - When your boss asks you to operate equipment or do a job that you haven’t been trained on or the law protects you from doing. 
  - When you see “an accident waiting to happen.”
  - When a friend or co-worker asks you to do something that you know you’re not supposed to do.
