U of T Work-Study Student WINS #PracticeSafeWorkContest!

June 22, 2016

The WSIB wants to show young workers that it pays to be safe.  From May 30-August 31, 2016 they are offering $100 Daily Cash Prizes in exchange for photos showing how young workers and their company #PracticesSafeWork.

We are pleased to announce that our Health and Safety Advisor at the Faculty of Arts and Science (Christine Weidner) helped her Work-Study student (Julia Lee) enter the contest and she won $100 for her photo!

We encourage all young workers at U of T to participate in the contest. Fostering a safe working culture is a collaborative effort and in this case may even result in extra cash! Feel free to share your contest photos of practicing safe work with us by emailing our office.
