Parents for Student Safety Employment Standards

PASSES EDGETM is designed for students. Teens are among the most vulnerable employees in the work force because of their relative inexperience on the job. Each year, some 70 U.S. adolescents are killed at work and 70,000 others are injured seriously enough on the job to require treatment in an emergency room.
The skills learned in a PASSES EDGE training will stay with teens throughout their working lives. Learning to safely handle cleaning chemicals and properly lift heavy loads can prevent debilitating injuries and keep students from missing class, dances and sporting events. Information and training are the keys to a safe and productive work experience.

If your school doesn’t offer the PASSES EDGE, please let your teachers know about the PASSES program. For more information, PASSES President Donna Weaver can be reached at (313) 910-6531 or by e-mail at a
