Every day in Newfoundland and Labrador, two young workers aged 15-24 are injured on the job. The Commission's goal is to empower workers, especially youth, to take action, and to help foster a culture of safety throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, where workplace accidents are unacceptable. SAFE Work NL's Who Wants to Save a Life? is one of the Commission's strategies for reaching elementary, junior and senior high school and post-secondary students with the occupational health and safety message.
The game show is a fast-paced and energized game which heightens your awareness of occupational health and safety.
