 Injury Prevention Week’s History

In 2018, to celebrate Actsafe’s 20th year in the business of helping to keep workers safe, Actsafe launched a new injury prevention initiative, the Actsafe Injury Prevention Week (AIP Week.)
The goal of this annual event is to spread awareness of the leading causes of injury to BC’s arts and entertainment industry workers and to provide shareable tips, tools and resources to help prevent these injuries.
