while at ESQ?
We've all heard that voice — the one that says, "This seems dangerous. I should probably stop what I'm doing and tell someone." Ignoring that voice could have life-changing consequences. Remember: you have a responsibility for safety, too. Listen to your gut — in other words, trust your instincts and talk to your manager or supervisor if you feel or see something is unsafe at work.
This year's contest theme, "Listen to your gut," challenges students to create a video (maximum two minutes) that explores the topic of how trusting your instincts can help keep you safe at work.
There's over $10,000 in prize money for students and schools. Entries will be judged on the impact of their safety message, original creative concept, and technical execution. The top entry will also advance to the national Focus on Safety Youth Video Contest to compete for additional prizes.
Submission detailsPost your video on YouTube and have your teacher sponsor fill out the entry form and include the link to your video. We'll review your video and if it meets our criteria (no inappropriate language or images and no copyrighted music, please), we'll post your entry on our website.
For more details, see the contest rules and the entry form.
