The winners of WorkSafeBC’s Student Safety video contest have been announced and they are all excellent. Short, to the point and even fun.
My favourite was New Kid, Know Kid – the last second says it all. Go here to see the whole list.
Young workers need special attention. Why? Because they are often very inexperienced and eager to please; supervisors assume they know more than they do and companies provide inadequate training – the result being this group suffers more injuries than average.
Many companies take on new young workers at this time of year, albeit sometimes just for a few months.
If you are employing young workers, please take care of them as if they were your own children.
