Proclamation YSED 2015 from Don Morgan, Minister of Education!

Media Release for Proclamation of Saskatchewan Youth Safety Education Day 2015

Did you know?  In 2012, five workers under the age of 24 were killed in Saskatchewan. In 2013, the number of youth worker fatalities were two, both being under the age of 18. The SHSA works with both future workers and youth leaders to raise awareness of workplace hazards and risks, how to develop a positive workplace safety culture and the importance of eliminating workplace injuries. 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!

Reminder that worker’s have 3 basic rights:
1. The right to participate in health and safety related activities
2. The right to know about the hazards in the workplace
3. The right to refuse unusually dangerous work

Youth Injury Statistics:
On average four young people will not come home this year due to work related fatalities.

  • Each year 83,876 young workers are employed in Saskatchewan.
  • 55.9% of these workers will work in the hospitality industry before their secondary education is done.
  • On average 8,000 young Saskatchewan workers are injured every year. Injuries of youth working in the hospitality industries in Regina and Saskatoon account for 817 of these injuries.
  • 55.7% of Saskatchewan Food and Beverage Service workers are between 15 and 24
  • Saskatchewan has the 2nd worst injury rate in all of Canada!
  • Youth (aged 15-24) are 3 times likely to be injured on the job than any other worker.
