Workers Compensation Board of Prince Edward Island

Resources For Teachers

Every day in our province, young workers are injured on the job. The WCB is committed to raising awareness among our youth of workplace safety, in order to promote safe workplaces now, and in the future.

School teachers have the unique privilege of helping to shape our future workforce. The reality is, while students are busy acquiring skills and knowledge for life careers, they are already spending several hours each week in Island workplaces.

The WCB encourages all high school teachers throughout the province to spend one class period discussing young worker safety. To this end we have developed 75 minute lessons on the following topics:

Safety at work: Make safety a habit (2014) Are you as safe as you think? Ask yourself three questions (2013) Keeping it safe in the workplace: You have a role to play (2012) Targeting young workers through prevention education activities is one of the ways the WCB is committed to transforming attitudes and behaviours related to young worker safety.
