WSIB to host interactive booth at Skills Ontario Competition

TORONTO, April 28, 2017 /CNW/ - The WSIB is partnering with Skills Ontario to raise awareness and promote health and safety among Ontario students considering a career in the skilled trades. "Simon Says Hear This" is an interactive game for students that will illustrate how difficult it is to perform even simple tasks when you cannot hear.

This builds on our recent campaign to raise awareness about the cumulative effects of noise induced hearing loss - http://www.toneitdown.ca/
