If only we could hit rewind on a real workplace accident…
For Macey Thibeau, of Moncton, reversing steps in a workplace procedure is possible and educational – through video.
The École L’Odyssée high school student, chose to showcase how important it is to wear personal protection equipment around loud machinery in her video titled “La sécurité des écouteurs”.
