Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity - Student Chefs Help the WSIB Stir Up Workplace Safety Awareness



    TORONTO, Nov. 5 /CNW/ - Last year in Ontario, 101 workers lost their
lives due to traumatic injuries. This year, the number is already 73 at the
end of October. We can't allow this to continue.
    Please join us on Monday, November 5, for the unveiling of the WSIB's
newest campaign that aims to make everyone aware that zero is the only
acceptable number of workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities. Sample Clip
