We Try *epic fail!* To Pronounce These Arizona Cities! | CareerSafe Challenge

We really tried, Grand Canyon State, we really tried. ​

I Can't Believe She Said This! *fail* | CareerSafe Challenge

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!

#MySafeSummerJob is now live!

Summer is so close I can feel it. Honestly though, in Texas, it's already reaching 90 degrees and it feels like a full-fledged summer. While some enjoy the time off, hang out with friends, take big trips, many teens stay at home and work summer jobs. There are a plethora of motives behind them working but one thing unites them all: the need for safety. Teens have the highest accident and death rate than any other working demographic. They're frequently undertaught, undermined or over utilized – all of which have catastrophic ramifications for our students. On the flipside… Teens also have the highest usage of social media than any other demographic. That is why CareerSafe was proud to join O...

The Gravity of Grain Handling

Flowing grain is the number one cause of fatalities for grain handlers. When in large or unstable quantities, grain can flow like water. I mentioned earlier this week how the grain death of my mother's childhood friend scarred her for life. I knew I wasn't allowed to play on dirt/sand piles but never fully knew why. As I got older, I started to understand the gravity of it all. It only takes 15-60 seconds to be buried in a grain flow. Unlike water, there is no swimming in grain and unless rescue comes within a few seconds of entrapment, you typically suffocate or "drown" in it. Often when we hear about someone drowning in water, we also hear about there is fluid in their nasal cavities, thro...
