THE JERSEY OF COURAGE
It takes courage to lead. It takes courage to refuse unsafe work.
Our Safety Charter
The Jersey of Courage is MySafeWork's safety charter, created to engage employees and students. We've collected over 500,000 signatures - from Prime Ministers, Premiers, and CEOs, to frontline workers, parents, and students. Each signature represents a commitment to making Canada the world's safest place to work.
At the age of 18, David Ellis was killed in a workplace accident. He was given limited training and no supervision. It was his second day on the job. After David's death, Rob Ellis started MySafeWork, a not-for-profit organization and registered charity.
Our mission is to prevent workers from getting injured and killed at work. Since 1999, we've reached millions of people with a simple message: don't work for a company that doesn't respect you. At the same time, we inspire companies to achieve greatness in safety culture.
