Work is an important part of life, but no job is worth getting hurt over. Workplace injuries happen in a heartbeat but the resulting injuries can have a lasting impact on your ability to do the things you like to do. Further, everyone who works has rights under employment standards to be treated fairly in their workplace.
The contest challenges secondary school students and those who are not in secondary school (but are at least 18 years old and less than 25) to use their creativity to develop an original video that can be used in social media to illustrate to younger workers the importance of working safely on the job or about their rights to being paid fairly for the work they do.
Contestants can submit videos starting February 1, 2013 until the contest closes on April 5, 2013 at 11:59 p.m., local time.
The contest is open to Canadian residents in two categories:
Employees of provincial or federal workers' compensation boards, provincial and federal ministries and departments of labour and their immediate family members are not eligible.
