2 CURRENT SITUATION CURRENT SITUATIONCURRENT SITUATION OUR STORY WHERE WE ARE WHERE WE’RE GOING COURSES OFFERED CURRICULUM ALIGNMENT COURSE CONTENT BENEFITS HOW TO REGISTER REFERENCES AND INDUSTRY USERS Workers between 15 and 24 (young workers) have the highest risk of getting hurt at work – up to twice that of other workers. By combining industry and regulatory requirements, CTS safety training and the emerging workforce, Safety in Schools will reduce and eliminate workplace injuries and fatalities of young workers across Alberta. 2

3 OUR STORY REDUCING INJURIES AND FATALITIES Safety in Schools Foundation of Canada is a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing worksite injuries and fatalities among young workers by providing students with interactive, industry recognized online safety training through Alberta high schools. ONLINE DELIVERY Online delivery allows students to work at their own pace and the combination of visual, audio and written content allows them to absorb the information in the manner that works best for them. CLASSROOM USE While students are engaged through online, interactive courses, teachers are provided with a no cost method of lesson delivery that aligns with high school curriculum outcomes for HCS3000, HCS3010 and AGR3000, as well as several learning outcomes for various courses within the CTS stream. CURRENT SITUATION OUR STORYOUR STORY WHERE WE ARE WHERE WE’RE GOING COURSES OFFERED CURRICULUM ALIGNMENT COURSE CONTENT BENEFITS HOW TO REGISTER REFERENCES AND INDUSTRY USERS 3 The Safety in Schools program is important to young workers because the employers would like to know that the 16 year olds actually know what they’re doing. The courses give you specialized knowledge for specific jobs while also giving you general knowledge that applies everywhere. [It] is easier than you think, and you learn more than you think. – T.N. – Student, Registered Apprenticeship Program, Calgary The Safety in Schools program is important to young workers because the employers would like to know that the 16 year olds actually know what they’re doing.

4 WHERE WE ARE CURRENT SITUATION OUR STORY WHERE WE AREWHERE WE ARE WHERE WE’RE GOING COURSES OFFERED CURRICULUM ALIGNMENT COURSE CONTENT BENEFITS HOW TO REGISTER REFERENCES AND INDUSTRY USERS Over three years of operation, Safety in Schools has grown from a presence in one school with seven students to more than 190 schools with over 42,400 course enrollments, adding new schools and new students regularly. We have schools signed up in over 70% of the Public and Catholic school districts in Alberta and are currently working with representatives of several boards to implement our program district-wide. Students have mastered over 21,700 courses to date. 4

5 WHERE WE’RE GOING CURRENT SITUATION OUR STORY WHERE WE ARE WHERE WE’RE GOINGWHERE WE’RE GOING COURSES OFFERED CURRICULUM ALIGNMENT COURSE CONTENT BENEFITS HOW TO REGISTER REFERENCES AND INDUSTRY USERS CONTENT CREATION Safety in Schools has received funding to develop a new course titled, Life Lessons— Learning the Hard Way. Working together with people directly impacted by workplace incidents, this course aims to challenge the idea that “it can’t happen to me” by providing young workers with first-hand accounts from people no different than them who have been injured or had a loved one killed on the job. Students taking the Life Lessons – Learning the Hard Way course will be challenged to consider the physical, emotional and financial impacts of workplace injuries and fatalities that go beyond the individual, and to put real names and faces to otherwise faceless statistics. We are also in the planning stages of developing another custom Safety in Schools course called That’s Got to Hurt! – Lessons from the Workplace. This course will focus on incidents experienced and witnessed by Safety in Schools students and shared with us through a variety of media. CONTESTS In order to compile content for That’s Gotta Hurt!, we will be running a series of contests throughout 2015 and 2016 and we encourage all students to participate. Teachers can help drive this initiative by using these contests as a tool to drive classroom dialogue, or as part of an in-class project. We will be running three different types of contests: 5 Social Media ContestsStudent Video ContestStudent Essay Contest

6 WHERE WE’RE GOING CURRENT SITUATION OUR STORY WHERE WE ARE WHERE WE’RE GOINGWHERE WE’RE GOING COURSES OFFERED CURRICULUM ALIGNMENT COURSE CONTENT BENEFITS HOW TO REGISTER REFERENCES AND INDUSTRY USERS SCHOOL TOURS As part of the Life Lessons initiative, we have partnered up with motivational speaker, Candace Carnahan, who was severely injured at the age of 21 in a pulp mill incident, to speak to students about her own experience with a life-altering workplace injury and the impact that it had not just on her, but on her family, friends and coworkers. Teaching young people the basics of workplace safety is vital, but it is equally important to drive safety messages home in ways that tap into the emotional part of their brains, and that they can relate to personally. Our speaking tours with Candace is one approach to doing so. In November 2014, we visited schools in Calgary and Fort McMurray and are currently planning future tours in Edmonton and Grande Prairie (Spring 2015) and Lethbridge, Lloydminster, Red Deer and Medicine Hat (Fall 2015). 6

Our Curriculum Aligned courses were designed to meet the learning outcomes for Work Experience programs and certain CTS courses. Our Enhancement courses provide safety training that is more geared toward individual workplace settings and skill sets. 7

Safety in Schools also provides high school students not enrolled in the CTS program with the opportunity to advance their personal safety knowledge, build their resume, and work safely in a full or part- time position. The following is how the Safety in Schools program aligns with the HCS-3000, HCS-3010 and AGR-3000 Curriculum from Alberta Education: 8
