Back to School & Back to Safety

 

Did you know young and new workers are the most at risk of injury on the job?

Each year in Saskatchewan, approximately 3,200 youth under the age of 25 are injured on the job, and an average of two die from workplace incidents. Youth are heading back to work – returning to a part-time position after summer break or beginning their first day in a new career. That is why there is no better time than the beginning of September to focus on workplace health and safety.

11 years ago, we designated September 10th as Youth Safety Education Day! The purpose of this day is to provide meaningful safety education, leadership, and awareness to youth across Saskatchewan about the importance of workplace safety at the beginning of the school year! Join us and participate in Youth Safety Education Day this year, with events from September 6th – 10th!

Extending far beyond just September, we also offer online courses to high school students through our partnership with Safety in Schools! There are many courses offered to Saskatchewan teachers and students, all developed based on Saskatchewan legislation and Saskatchewan high school curriculum. The courses range from 30 minutes to 3 hours, and teachers can access students’ progress and download recorded grades. Students can also go back and review material, pause the course and take it at their own pace. Safety in Schools is continually improving their processes, and it is now easier than ever to get started and navigate our virtual courses!
