Meet Larry

Workforce Challenge

As a protective services agent for 20 years, Larry was suddenly without work when his company closed. In need of a new job to provide for his family of five, he worked a few temporary and consultant jobs, but he was unable to find permanent employment.

Workforce Solution

During a job search, Larry discovered the South Bay Workforce Investment Board and Inglewood One-Stop. With the help of one-stop staff, Larry was able to learn about the Advanced Safety Training Program offered by the Occupational Safety Councils of America (OSCA). Since his previous work experience would translate well into a career in occupational safety, he decided to attend the training.

Outcomes & Benefits

Upon graduation, Larry secured a full-time, permanent position as an Environmental Health & Safety Supervisor with a local transportation company. He is happy to be employed and providing once again for his family.
