The winner of this year's Workers Compensation Board of P.E.I. High School Video Contest highlights the dangers of working when you are tired, especially on the farm.
The two-minute video from Grade 11 students Ben MacMillan and Jacob MacDonald, Know Your Limits, follows a fatigued young farm worker throughout his daily tasks.
"The contest continues to be a great way to get students involved in discussions around safety in the workplace," said Stuart Affleck, chair of the Workers Compensation Board, in a news release.
"We know that one of the highest rates for workplace accidents happen among young workers (15-24 years of age) and we need to change that."
MacMillan and MacDonald will share a $1,000 cash prize and receive $1,000 for their school.
Know Your Limits now moves on to a national competition sponsored by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety.
Islanders can cast their vote to make the Morell students' video the fan favourite in the national contest.
