Tina-and-Jessica
Last week all of CareerSafe came together to HQ in College Station, TX.  As we were working together one representative from New York tried to say a city name in Texas and botched it… badly.  With the Marketing team and Program Manager there within earshot, a lightbulb went on and a video series was born. We love the communities we serve and are excited for you all to get to know them a little better.  Happy watching!

Helpful Tips for Winter Weather

winter
Even though Groundhog Day is still nearly two weeks away, I wouldn't be surprised if the little guy sees his shadow and retreats back to his home to hunker down for an extended winter. This winter has been consistently inconsistent. Here in Central Texas, we had days near freezing followed by days where you could wear shorts comfortably. Up north, the country has been pounded by snow storm after snow storm. In fact, as of publishing, half of the country is snowed in due to a recent barrage of storms that our neighbors to the north (ahem, Canada) thrust upon northerners from Maine to Washington. With all of the winter weather that is still to come, we at CareerSafe want to pass along a few ti...

Happy 47th Birthday, OSHA OTI!

OTI-B_20191218-231600_1

OSHA's mission to provide safe and healthful workplaces was carried out through the enforcement of standards, provision of training, outreach, education, and assistance. With that in mind, 8 months later, on this day, the OSHA Training Institute was established. The OSHA Training Institute was created...
