Youth Safety Education Day

Join us and participate in Youth Safety Education Day this year from Sept 6th – 10th!

Did you know – young and new workers are the most at risk for injury on the job? Nearly 3,400 young workers under the age of 25 are injured on the job EVERY year in our province. Young workers are a vital part of our workforce. This year we plan to reach and connect with schools, organizations and industry members to help us reach 50,000 youth across Saskatchewan and the country about the importance of workplace health and safety. But we need your help!


What is Youth Safety Education Day?

Youth Safety Education Day (YSED) occurs annually on September 10th. The purpose of this day is to provide meaningful safety education, leadership and awareness to youth across Saskatchewan and beyond (up to the age of 25) about the importance of workplace health and safety, safety at school, at play, while socializing and psychological health and safety. Gaining this valuable information before young workers take their first step into the workplace or while currently employed in their first jobs is a KEY step in injury prevention. 


Why Safety Matters:


How to Participate and Show your Support

Youth are heading to work – whether that be to their first summer job, returning to a part-time position after summer break or beginning their very 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. This year, YOU can be a safety leader by getting involved in the following ways.

Understanding the Stats

Young people are a significant part of our workforce. Almost one-third of high school students work while attending school full-time. Many will continue to work while participating in post-secondary education programs. Unfortunately, all too often a young person’s first work experiences are not as rewarding as they should be.

  • Young and new workers are the most at risk for injury on the job and experience higher rates of injuries than other workers. Nearly half of all young employees start their first jobs in the service sector – most frequently in sales, accommodation, or food services.

  • Nearly 3,400 young workers under the age of 25 are injured every year in our province.

  • On average, there are two youth fatalities on the job each year.

  • Young people aged 15-24 are more likely to experience mental illness than any other age group. Only 1 out of 5 children receive appropriate mental health services in Canada.

These heartbreaks and injuries CAN be prevented with the proper safety training and education. We are reaching out to you to help us raise awareness and take a safety leadership role by supporting Youth Safety Education Day 2022.

Be a part of the cultural safety change today!
