Celebrating Youth Safety Education Day by Giving Away Gift Cards to Sask High School Teachers

In support of the provincially proclaimed Youth Safety Education Day on Sept. 10, 2018, the Saskatchewan Safety Council is recognizing teachers and schools who register their classes for free safety training through Career Safety Education, a program for youth aged 14 and 21.

All teachers in Saskatchewan registering their class for free Career Safety Education before October 1st, 2018 will receive a $10.00 gift card redeemable towards nice warm beverages or a great book. Each class registration will additionally serve as an entry for one Saskatchewan school to win $1,000.00.

“We appreciate the hard work that educators do and want to thank them for being safety champions. Students in our free Career Safety Education program learn to recognize safe choices and develop risk analysis skills that will prove valuable for the rest of their lives,” says Saskatchewan Safety Council Community Relations Coordinator, Merissa Scarlett.

Career Safety Education is the result of a strategic alliance of organizations brought together by the Saskatchewan Safety Council to provide every Saskatchewan youth between 14 and 21 with free career focused safety education. 

Currently, Career Safety Education includes training in worker rights and responsibilities through the Young Worker Readiness Course (WorkSafe), training in basic chemical safety through WHMIS 2015 (Saskatchewan Safety Council), mental health strategies through Mental Health: Health and Wellness Strategies, and one standardized industry designed safety orientation:
