In an effort to help get students started on the right path early for a long, safety-focused career, students enrolled in Mr. Sauter’s Automotive Technology classes at the Egg Harbor Township High School have taken the huge step this year to attain national recognition in OSHA and EPA requirements for safety and pollution prevention training. U.S. Federal law mandates that career and technical education programs (CTE) deliver safety compliance/safety training to all students to address the hazards that they could face in the classroom/shop environment. This training must take place before a student can even begin working in the Auto Shop at the High School. Moreover, OSHA requires that students receive annual training to ensure that they are up-to-date on the latest regulations. Students in Mr. Sauter’s Automotive Technology classes will be required to recertify their skills/training every year during the month of September. A job well done to all of the students in Mr. Sauter’s Auto Technology classes who received their certifications
