WorkSafeNB is pleased to announce the winners of its annual Focus on Safety student video competition.

The competition, aimed at fostering a culture of safety among young workers, received an impressive array of submissions from students across the province this year, showcasing the importance of workplace safety.

Sugarloaf High School has claimed first place in this year’s contest with their video Work Safely. Team Lead Maggee Leavey and fellow students Büke Alagöz, Jackson Benard, and Lexington Alexander have won the grand prize of $1,000 and a matching prize for their school.

"We are thrilled to see the level of creativity and dedication to safety demonstrated by the students in this year's competition," said Richard Blais, Vice President of Prevention at WorkSafeNB. "These videos not only highlight the importance of safety in the workplace but also serve as a reminder for young workers that they have a responsibility for their own safety including reporting unsafe situations to their supervisor."

Second place went to École L'Odyssée de Moncton students Sébastien Côté, Lucie Després, Marisol Gingras, and Ariana Matthews for their video Sécurité au travail . Quintin Bedford from Sussex Regional High School took home third place with his video Carbon Can Kill. Each of the winning videos earned a cash prize and matching funds for their school.

"We commend all the winners and participants for their dedication to promoting safety in the workplace," Blais said. "These creative videos serve as inspiring messages that safety is everyone's responsibility, regardless of age or experience."

WorkSafeNB is committed making New Brunswick the safest place to work and supporting the next generation of workers.
