Survey - Live Safe! Work Smart!

Ontario is one few jurisdictions in the world that includes health and safety education in appropriate curriculum, policies and programs to help prepare students for healthy and safe working lives. Since 1999, when the new curriculum was launched, injury rates for Ontario teenagers have decreased by 70%, no doubt influenced by lessons taught by Ontario teachers.   The Ministry of Labour has produced and provided the Live Safe! Work Smart! set of teacher resources, teacher web site, related resources and delivered support to the education system for nearly 15 years to facilitate student safety education.   To help us ensure we continue to provide relevant, appropriate and well-used resources and supports for teachers, please complete the survey, in English or in French, to help inform a renewal plan.  The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete. It’s open for responses until  June 30th .   English: surveys/ontminlabour/live- safe-
