Young workers (under the age of 25) are at increased risk for injury at work. This is largely because they lack experience, do not know their rights, and often do not get the training and supervision they need to do their jobs safely.
Health and Safety for Young Workers is a basic health and safety orientation for young workers. It provides general information on legal rights and responsibilities and common hazards.
