Youth Safety Presentations

Each year, 83,876 young workers are employed in Saskatchewan; on average, 4,000 of these workers are injured yearly. Injuries of youth working in the hospitality industries in Regina and Saskatoon account for approximately 817 of these injuries. On average, three young Saskatchewan people don’t make it home from work every year.

Here at Service Hospitality, we are taking this very seriously. We offer a variety of in-person safety presentations that follow the school curriculum. We know that we can drastically reduce these startling numbers by teaching these young people the extreme importance of workplace safety at a young age. By presenting our Youth Initiatives Training to schools in every school district across the province, we will have a great opportunity to teach and eliminate these risks before the youth of our province enter the workforce.

Our Youth Presentations focus on the myths surrounding safety and are presented in a style that speaks to youth on their level. We currently offer presentations to Grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, and high school. For more information, click through the information provided below:

Rarely do students know that they have the RIGHT TO KNOW, the RIGHT TO PARTICIPATE and the RIGHT TO REFUSE any task they feel uncertain or scared of for whatever reason. We have been taught to do what you are told and “just get the job done”. We are working towards re-educating Saskatchewan youth to know their rights, and the importance of protecting themselves and their peers from all hazards they may face on the job. Your first job should be something you take pride in, not something that may hurt or kill you!
