News Release WorkSafeNB reminds workplaces to incorporate safety in Take Our Kids to Work Day

November 13, 2018

National Take Our Kids to Work Day is Wednesday, November 14th. The program invites Grade 9 students from across Canada to accompany a parent or other trusted adult in a workplace setting.

WorkSafeNB is reminding employers to ensure safety is part of the program.

“All students should start the day with a safety orientation,” says Tim Petersen, WorkSafeNB’s vice-president of prevention.

“Ensure they understand and follow all safety requirements. Use the day to showcase the importance of safety and need for mindfulness and preparation,” he added.

WorkSafeNB offers two excellent resources to help employers and parents: its Young Workers safety topic at worksafenb.ca and its New Employee Orientation topic on its Guide to OHS Legislation website and app.
