Enter the Workplace Safety & Health Challenge to design a tool that demonstrates the importance of recognizing and preventing hazards by helping young workers to understand their rights in the workplace.  A panel of judges that includes Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan and the co-hosts of the popular Discovery Channel show “Myth Busters,” Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, will select winners for the “Safety in the Workplace Innovator Award” that comes with a $15,000 prize, and the “Safety and Health Data Award” and the “Workers’ Rights Award,” each of which includes a $6,000 prize. There is also a “People’s Choice Award” that has a $3,000 prize for the developer of the app that receives the most public votes on the challenge website.
