Every Job Has Hazards – Especially For Young Workers!

Every minute, one young worker under 25 is injured at work.  The scenarios on this activity page can be used by parents to help children prepare for being safe on the job, or by employers as a training activity – http://youngworkers.org/injuries/hazards/hazards-activity-page/.

Employers, especially, have a responsibility to point out hazards, give clear instructions for each task, and provide hands-on training on the correct use of any equipment.
