Restaurateurs can use the new “Safety Sticks” kit to ensure their youth employees work safely. This kit was developed by WCB Nova Scotia and the Department of Labour and Advanced Education. It’s designed in time for the busy spring and summer season when more young workers join the restaurant industry.

What’s in the kit
The kit reminds young workers that working safely lets them enjoy the things they like to do after work. It contains:

  • posters;
  • stickers that can be placed in your restaurant where a safety reminder may be helpful;
  • a pledge that workers and employers take together;
  • an entry form for a contest to win free catering for a staff event; and
  • earplugs for use on and off the job.
