ILO SafeYouth@Work Media Competition – Show Us What Safety Means to You

Did you know young workers are 40% more likely than older workers to suffer occupational injuries? Reasons for this include a lack of experience and training, limited knowledge of Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) hazards and risks and/or a lack of understanding of their rights. We are looking for creative ideas from young people who would like to be part of the “SafeYouth@Work Media Competition”! The SafeYouth@Work Project wants your help to raise awareness around the world on the importance of safety and health for young workers.

Submission categories: We want to hear youth voices on safety and health at work via submissions in the following categories: film, photo, poster/drawing, song, story or „surprise us“. The prize: All winning entries will be featured at the World Congress on Safety and Health at Work in Singapore, 3-6 September, and selected winners will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Singapore to present their work!

Who can participate: Anyone aged 15 to 24 can submit their creative media produced after 1 January 2016; we look forward to seeing your creative and engaging submissions – above all, we want to see/hear your innovative thinking on safety and health at work… It doesn’t have to be fancy or complicated, just smart and catchy with a message that speaks to young people around the world!

Submission deadline: 30 June 2017
