Eleven videos featured on YouTube

Salem - High school students across the state created videos that are full of drama, humor, and interesting characters to increase awareness about workplace safety with the message, "Speak up. Work safe." The Oregon Young Employee Safety Coalition (O[yes]) sponsors the annual video contest to engage teen workers, who are twice as likely to be injured on the job, according to federal studies.

The top 11 finalists are now posted on YouTube​ for viewing (click on 2015 video submissions).
