  • Talk to your kids about workplace health and safety

    Parents are in a unique position to influence how their kids think about safety at work. By talking to your kids about safety when they’re young, and sharing your own knowledge and experiences, your kids will establish safe attitudes and behaviours that will translate to safety at work. Moreover, once they enter the workplace, they will be well equipped to advocate for their own safety in the workplace to prevent accidents and injuries.
