Safety tweets for young workers

Toronto — Students with summer jobs in Ontario can add “WorkinSummer” to their Twitter feeds to get workplace tips. Every week, until Labour Day, Ontario’s Ministry of Labour will tweet tips about on-the-job health and safety and employment standards (such as information on minimum wage, overtime pay and statutory holidays). Each tweet poses a question and links to a section of the ministry’s website for the answer and related information.
