How do you focus on safety?

WorkSafeNB, in co-operation with the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, hosts the 2017 Focus on Safety Youth Video Contest. The contest invites high school students to create a two-minute original video that captures the importance of working safely. Prizes include cash for both students and their high schools.

The first-place winning video from the New Brunswick contest will be entered in the Canadian Focus on Safety finals, where it will compete against other winning videos from across the country. It will also be viewed by Canadians coast-to-coast during Fan Favourite Week in late April.

Enter today! Contest ends April 7, 2017.


First place: $1,000 for the student, plus $1,000 for their high school.

Second place: $750 for the student, plus $750 for their high school.

Third place: $500 for the student, plus $500 for their high school.
