6-minute safety talks

Safety is always a priority in the classroom, but it can sometimes be a challenge to work it into your instructional plans. WorkSafeBC has created a series of 6-minute safety talks for students in apprenticeship programs. They're designed to be given at the beginning of a class — or anywhere else they fit into the schedule.

For each topic, we've provided a student handout and an instructor's guide with suggested resources.
