'Safety Matters': A successful launch on Cape Cod to the 7th grade at Monomoy Regional Middle School

'Safety Matters' has officially been launched on Cape Cod. I gave three back-to- back presentations to over 100 7th graders who attend the Monomoy Regional Middle School in Chatham, MA (Cape Cod) on Friday December 16, 2016. The 7th grade students had an abbreviated schedule: 30 minute blocks of curriculum today instead of the usual 50 minute blocks to accommodate an enrichment at the end of the day facilitated by the Museum of Science.

'Safety Matters' on Cape Cod

Why is this important? Here are some statistics you may not know:  "Approximately 1.6 million U.S. teens (aged 15–17) work.Every nine minutes, a U.S. teen is injured on the job.On average, each year:59,800 workers under the age of 18 are sent to the ER for job-related injuries37 workers under the age of 18 die on the job.Young workers are twice as likely to be injured compared to adult workers."
