Public agencies play pivotal roles in building the public’s confidence in public institutions. Public agency officials understand how to interact with members of the public and know how to reassure the community when there are public outcries for justice, equality, and better-quality services. As an agency manager at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), create a video message for release to state officials where you inform the public of current labor statistics. On the BLS website, run a report for one U.S. state of your choice and provide a short video based on your findings. Ensure your video captures the following:
- Describe the statistics for reported workplace injuries and illnesses over the past three years within the state of choice.
- Explain the types of injuries that occurred and the industries with the highest percentage of injuries.
- Assess the types of policy solutions state agencies have implemented to assist with benefits for employees.
- Critique the employers’ policy response and solution and the impacts on the workforce.
Length: 2-3 Minutes
