Health and Safety Educator Award
WorkSafeNB Safety Star Awards
The annual WorkSafeNB Safety Star Awards recognizes New
Brunswickers who make health and safety a priority every day.
One of these awards, the WorkSafeNB Health and Safety Educator
Award, honours two New Brunswick educators or groups who make youth
health and safety a priority through education – one each from an
anglophone and a francophone school sector.
Nominees must be employees of a school or Early Learning and
Child Care (ELCC) centre in either a K-12 or ELCC-12 environment.
Other criteria include promoting health and safety leadership in
and out of the classroom and incorporating learning opportunities,
such as safety talks and health presentations, in curriculum.
As part of its safety goal, WorkSafeNB works with New Brunswick
stakeholders to reduce the frequency of workplace injuries in the
province. The agency has dedicated programs to help promote safety
leadership in youth from grades K-12. It also offers resources and
support for young workers up to the age of 24, as well as their
parents, teachers and employers.
