Focus on Safety Youth Video Contest

Introduction

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.

Use your creativity to develop an original video that can be used in social media to illustrate the importance of working safely on the job.
