On average, just over 3,000 workers under age 25 are injured on the job each year in Nova Scotia. You’ll agree we can do better.
The Safety Sticks kit is designed to help prevent young worker injuries by opening up a dialogue about workplace safety. The kit includes tools and strategies to help you work together with your young workers to create a safer work environment. It’s something that matters to everyone.
WHAT'S IN THE KIT?
Safety Sticks Workplace Stickers
These are stickers to place around your workplace in locations where a safety reminder might be helpful. They’re a unique way to remind your young workers to exercise caution and to let them know that their safety matters to you.
Young Worker Safety Pledge Forms
The pledge is a promise that you say aloud with your young workers – either individually or in a group setting – and sign to seal your commitment. Every time you take a pledge and return it to us, you’re entered for a chance to win a grocery store gift card of your choice to put toward an end-of-summer celebration for your staff.
Along with the stickers, the poster will spread the word around your workplace about the Safety Sticks initiative.
Workplace Safety Conversation Starter
This useful pamphlet will help you begin the workplace safety discussion with your young workers. It will also give you some tips for how to encourage your other employees to get involved.
A free gift for your young workers
These earplugs are a small reminder for your young workers to stay safe, both at work and during their leisure time.
