May 1 - 7, 2022
To mark this year’s Safety and Health Week, WSCC is focusing on how to prepare young workers to safely enter the workforce, know their rights as workers, and how they can build their resume with the WSCC Young Worker Safety Course.
Did you know: workers under 25 years of age are at a greater risk for workplace injuries?
Workplace safety is a learned skill – WSCC's Young Workers' Program has useful guidance and information for employers, young workers, parents, and educators to help keep young workers safe on the job.
WSCC Safety Professionals will be visiting schools and businesses across the NWT and Nunavut during the week, and are hosting industry-specific Zoom sessions for employers who frequently hire young workers. See below for your opportunity to join in!
All Zoom sessions start at 1pm MT/3pm ET.
- Monday, May 2 – Construction Industry
- Tuesday, May 3 – Retail and Service Industry
- Wednesday, May 4 – Recreation, Parks, and Youth Organizations
- Thursday, May 5 – Municipal, Local, and Territorial Governments
- Friday, May 6 – All Employers
