The suspension of classes in all Manitoba schools has meant even more disruption in the lives of families over the last several weeks. This is a challenging time for many families. To help ease the burden of coming up with ideas to engage your kids and teens during this pandemic, we offer the following resources and activities:
- Young Worker Readiness Certificate Course - Increase your awareness and understanding of what constitutes a safe, healthy, productive and respectful workplace. Young workers: Complete this online, job-readiness course prior to working. Youth aged 13 to 15 are required to take this course before they start working.
- Norm the Safety Contest - SAFE Work Manitoba invites students in Grades 9-12 to tap into their superhero creativity and create projects that show young Manitobans how to Make Safety the Norm. First place wins $2,500! Stay tuned for 2021 dates.
- Farm Safety Drawing Contest - We’re looking for kids between the ages of 6 to12 from across the province to draw us their interpretation of one of four safety topics…and in return, we’re offering them a chance to win an iPad! Stay tuned for 2021 dates.
We also have a variety of resources specifically designed for young workers, employers/supervisors, family and educators to help keep young workers safe on the job. Visit our Young Worker toolkit
