Safety In Schools

Committed to the Safety of Young Workers

The Safety in Schools Foundation is a registered non-profit organization committed to providing young workers across Canada with the opportunity to learn the basics about workplace safety. Formed by industry to address the high rate of workplace injuries among workers between the ages of 15 and 24, Safety in Schools delivers free online, industry-recognized workplace safety courses to high school students at participating schools, along with support for teachers and school administrators. Our goal is to prepare every young person entering the workforce with the knowledge to recognize and avoid hazards, regardless of which career path they choose or the industry they work in.

Partnership

Service Hospitality in partnership with Safety in Schools began a pilot program, offering four Saskatchewan aligned courses through the Regina Catholic School Division that kicked off in the fall of 2017. Workplace safety training is essential for high school students before they enter the workforce, so they are aware of the hazards in the workplace and their basic rights as a worker.

If you are interested in implementing any of the below Safety in Schools’ programs into your classroom or facility, please email us at [email protected].
