Young people are the most vulnerable to accident and injury in the workplace. More than 2000 people aged 15-24 are injured in Victorian workplaces every year and their injuries are more likely to result in hospitalisation.
This briefing will show you how to talk with young people about safety, how to train then and give ongoing support, and how you can bolster your organisation’s safety culture for everyone.
This briefing will increase your knowledge of:
The characteristics of a young worker
How to adapt your communication style for younger people
How to be a safety mentor for young people
How to build a strong safety culture in your workplace.
This briefing is suited to business owners, HR and professionals and managers/supervisors who employ or manage young workers, including casual, full or part time employees, contractors, interns or those doing work experience.
