I think it might mean that they go from being students, and not technically subject to the requirement s of OSHA, to being employees, who are subject to those requirements. Students can’t be “fired” for non-co mpliance with safety rules. There may be consequences but eventually, students will get their degrees and take bad habits with them into industr y.

I think that (some/ma ny) students do not take safety seriously or perhaps do not see it as a per sonal responsibility.

I’d very interested in your list for the “new set of rules [ that] kick in” when our students move into industry.
It is also very helpful to us out in the "world" if students are trained to observe safety practices that will be required when they get to us. A whole new set of rules kick in when they go from being "students" to being "employees".
To borrow a term from my Army d ays - "train the same way that you will fight".
