This year, we are dedicating our participation in Safety and Health Week to talking about employee rights and responsibilities, and the benefits of safety education for new employees.
Safety and health week is a time to reflect on the most recent Day of Mourning (April 28), and renew our commitment to staying safe at work. No job is worth injury or death, and we all deserve to stay safe on the job. That starts with educating our youngest workers. Providing them with the tools to make informed decisions, and participate in their own safety as well as that of their colleagues, is of enormous benefit to them, their employers and their community.
This year let’s start a conversation about the basics, and give young workers the knowledge they need to feel educated and empowered.
