Safe Youth Award
Ever hear of a prize for working safely? Two $500 prizes are awarded each summer to youth who demonstrate an understanding of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) principles in the workplace. One prize will be awarded in each of two categories, youth 15 – 19 years of age, and youth 20 – 24 years old.

Youth (15 - 24 years old) may apply on their own, with an accompanying workplace reference, OR may be nominated by someone in the workplace who considers them worthy of the award. If you have questions, please contact Clare at ohs@wcb.pe.ca or (902) 368-6357
