About Safe Schools

Safe Schools is a project supported by the New Jersey Department of Education, Office of Career Readiness, to assist schools in reducing risk to occupational safety and health hazards in secondary school and work microenvironments in which NJ adolescents spend time. The project is administered by the Center for School and Community-Based Research and Education at the Rutgers-School of Public Health.
