Grade Level:
DIV IV,
Title:
Teaching from Tragedy
Topic:
There is no turning back the clock when someone loses a life or limb at work, but we can learn from these tragedies and use that loss to change attitudes and behaviours.
Summary:
Since 2014, Safety in Schools has shifted to include a greater focus on experience-based learning to complement the workplace safety training that is the core of our program. We are changing minds and saving lives by bringing students face to face with the real life consequences of workplace injuries and fatalities. Come learn about our newest courses, which explore real experiences with workplace injuries and fatalities, as well as the work we are doing bringing injury survivors into schools to speak with students about their lives, loss and the lessons they have learned. We will also discuss how you can use emotionally stimulating content to drive home lessons about personal responsibility and safety in your classrooms.
