The Ministry of Labour is sponsoring a safety video contest for Ontario secondary school students.
Use your creativity to develop an original video that can be used in social media to illustrate the importance of working safely on the job. This year there is an optional theme: Start the Conversation!
Students can create a video showcasing:
- How to communicate with peers – at school, at work, or any other setting – about the importance of working safely on the job,
- A message to peers to raise awareness about workplace safety, or
- Any other health and safety messages students wish to convey.
The top Ontario video will be entered in the national contest to compete against secondary school winners from across the country. This year, the first place national winning video will be announced and shown at the North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week Launch ceremony on May 7, 2017.
Contestants can submit videos until the contest closes on March 3, 2017, at 11:59 p.m., Eastern Daylight Saving Time.
