ASSE releases training game for teens

I think this is way cool and an interesting way to connect with the up and coming workers...

Joining the recent resurgence of zombies in pop culture, the American Society of Safety Engineers released a horror-themed training game for teen workers.

In "Don't be a Zombie at Work," players help in-game co-workers avoid becoming a "zombie" by finding tools to keep them safe on the job. The free online game is designed to teach teens the role occupational safety, health and environmental professionals play in workplace safety.

An estimated 158,000 young adults are victims of work-related injuries or illnesses each year and, in 2006, 15- to 17-year-olds accounted for 52,000 workplace injuries and illnesses requiring hospital treatment, according to NIOSH.
