Did you know we have a prize for working safely? Check out our Safe Youth Award. Two $500 prizes are given out each summer to youth who demonstrate an understanding of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) principles in their workplace. A prize will be awarded in each of two categories, youth 15 – 19 years of age, and youth 20 – 24 years old.

Youth in both age categories may apply on their own, with an accompanying workplace reference, or may be nominated by someone in the workplace.
