Don't become a statistic. Young workers are 24% more likely to get hurt in the first few months of a new job! Whether you are working for yourself or somebody else, if you get sick or hurt yourself badly, your wallet will suffer. Learn how to recognize problems before they bite you. From blocked fire exits to how to use a fire extinguisher; asbestos and mould in your workplace or living space; your rights and responsibilities as a worker; the importance of labels and educating yourself; ladders and lifting heavy objects; stress and Personal Protective Equipment, you need to know where to find information. Come and listen, ask questions, and join in discussion.

Presented by Ted Rickard, Manager, Health & Safety.

This week is all about YOU, the fourth-year student'to recognize your accomplishments as you near the end of your final year. Fourth-Year Week is a way for OCAD to say thank you and celebrate the valuable contribution you make to the OCAD community and beyond.

We welcome you to participate as your schedule allows.

March 10 to March 14, 2008

Connect, engage, reflect and have fun!

Check the Events Calendar for daily activities and watch for posters and a Fourth-Year Week brochure!
