Nov. 7: Talk Safety on Take Our Kids to Work Day
On Nov. 7, 2012, Take Our Kids to Work Day, parents should start a conversation about workplace safety with their children, suggests the WCB. The workplace can be intimidating for young workers who are trying hard to fit in, please their supervisors and get their work done. They may be inexperienced in recognizing safety hazards or feel reluctant to speak up about their safety. Parents can protect their children by opening a dialogue now about the importance of workplace safety.
