Partnership Package – Youth

Thank you for helping us raise awareness and taking a safety leadership role by partnering with us for this years Youth Safety Education Day! It is through efforts of individuals such as yourself that we can bring safety awareness and education to the youth of this province before they even step foot into the workforce.

This package was developed to help facilitate discussion and learning about workplace safety. The activities included in this package are all individually separated so you can complete as many, or as few, as you like. Each activity is prefaced with instructions, and most include additional information and suggested discussion questions about the safety topic. This is information for you as the facilitator, and can be used at your discretion.
