Social Media Contest
Contest Rules - How To Enter
Every day, our lives are made up of a series of choices. When to wake up, when to get out of bed, what to eat for breakfast if one chooses to eat breakfast at all, what time you go to work if one chooses to keep their job, and how to get there, are only a few of the choices made early each day.
Woven amongst those choices is often a series of safe choices affording us the ability to get on with our day, at home, at work, or at play, without incurring undue risk, injury, or worse.
Not all of us make the same safe choices even though we may be engaged in the same activity. Some of us choose to brush our teeth, hold the handrail on our way down the stairs, take a daily vitamin, cross at the crosswalk, wear our seatbelt, and put on the right personal protective equipment (PPE) at work.
Other individuals barely take the time to wake up before venturing out the door, repeatedly tripping over untied shoelaces, spilling hot coffee from a lidless cup and running amber traffic lights while attempting to get to a meeting thirteen minutes too late. No doubt, these folks could stand to learn a few things from the aforementioned.
Thus, the #SafeChoice Photo and Video Contest, a contest where photos and videos, which depict the safe choices we make every day, are shared publicly thereby serving to influence a positive change in behavior… or perhaps teach an old dog a new trick.
Join us in the sharing of safe choices by participating in our #SafeChoice Photo and Video Contest for a chance to win a $10,000 travel voucher. Read the Rules
