Young Worker Safety
United States of America, English
„HEADS UP – WORK SMART WORK SAFE“ is a project of WCB Worker’s Compensation Board in Alberta, Canada. The campaign provides information on young worker’s safety and offers several tools such as comics, a weblog, a Facebook page and a Twitter page. Info text of the project: "Trust your gut! Starting your first job can be scary. It's hard to know what to expect, what questions to ask and what to do about certain situations. One thing we can tell you for sure is that you'll never be out of line when you ask about safety. After all, it's your day, your life and your body that will be affected by an unsafe work situation. Did you know that: - young guys aged 18-24 are three times more likely to be injured on the job than any other workers? - you are more likely to get hurt within the first six months of employment than any other time? Tell us your safety stories (both good and bad), let us know where you've seen our posters and get involved. More importantly - give safety a voice!"
