    Step up for workplace safety!

    On Sunday, May 4, 2014*, communities across Canada will once again step up to raise awareness of the need to prevent workplace injury and illness, and to raise funds to provide peer support programs to families affected by a workplace tragedy.

    This past year, more than 5,000 walkers across the country raised more than $595,000 in cash donations.

    Each year, the momentum has grown. Through the hard work of hundreds of dedicated volunteers, Steps for Life is creating a movement across the country, by bringing awareness to the devastating ripple effect of workplace tragedies on Canadian families and communities. Steps for Life will once again kick off North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Week, bringing focus to workplace injury and illness prevention.

    Stay tuned to!

    Online registration will open on Friday, January 31st.

    As soon as registration opens, you will be able to find local walk details, registration information, and valuable tools to help make 2014 Steps for Life one for the record books.

    You will also find information on how you and your colleagues can participate and show your community that at your workplace, safety comes first!

    All funds raised will go to Threads of Life family support programs and services.
