Perspectives Receives National Recognition, Montana State Fund’s young workers’ safety website received the Workers’ Rights Award as part of the U.S. Department of Labor Worker Safety and Health App Challenge.

Montana State Fund was one of four winners that submitted tools which best demonstrated the importance of recognizing and preventing workplace safety and health hazards, and which help young people understand their rights in the workplace. Submissions were designed for Internet browsers, smartphones, feature phones and social media platforms, or as native Windows or Macintosh applications. There were a total of 20 entrants.
“It has been part of our mission to ensure that our state’s young workers get the education and information they need to understand their rights in the workplace,” said Laurence Hubbard, President and CEO of Montana State Fund. “ For many of these young people it is their first job and we want to help them establish good safety practices from the start. Our website is one of the tools we use to focus these efforts.”

The Worker’s Right Award also comes with a $6,000 monetary prize. According to Hubbard, this money will be used to continue our efforts to keep Montana’s young people and their employers aware of safety.

The creation of the website was a collaborative effort between Montana State Fund and Partners Creative in Missoula.
