"It's Your Job!" Video Contest

Work is an important part of life, but no job is worth getting hurt over. Workplace injuries happen in a heartbeat but the resulting injuries can have a lasting impact on your ability to do the things you like to do.

The "It's Your Job!" contest challenges secondary school students to use their creativity to develop an original video that can be used in social media to illustrate to younger workers the importance of working safely on the job.
