Young Workers

Safety level
Not sure of your safety level? Take the survey to find out.

Research shows that workers under age 25 are more likely to be injured on the job. Young workers and new workers are 5 times more likely to be hurt in the first month than workers who have been in their current job more than 1 year.

Young workers are great employees; they are eager and keen to work. They may not ask questions though, because they have a lot on their minds – school projects, their social lives, their last text message. As a result, they don’t always understand why workplace safety is important.

These resources for young workers can help.
