Teen Safety is No Joke at the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board of Ontario, Canada

Last year in Ontario, 10 people between the ages of 15 and 24 lost their lives because of workplace accidents. In response, a website has been launched by the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board of Ontario, Canada to drive home the importance of workplace safety to young workers. Animated and outrageous enough to catch the interests of a young crowd, the main attraction is the chance to win prizes like cell phones, MP3 players, Xbox 360 consoles and scholarships just for spending a few minutes completing a simple workplace safety quiz. The WSIB plans to run some of the animated ads in movie theaters, on public transit and online.
