Young Worker Safety Briefing (BOHEM1608)
Did you know that employees aged 15-24 are more likely to be injured at work than any other age group? In fact, more than 2000 young people are injured in Victorian workplaces each year and more commonly hospitalised for these injuries than other segments of the workforce.
Find out how to keep your young workers safe, healthy and productive at one of our free briefings.
During this briefing you will:
Learn why young workers are vulnerable
Anthony Corkhill, senior OHS consultant with the Victorian Chamber, will discuss the risk factors associated with young workers.
Get tips for managing young worker safety
WorkSafe Victoria will provide practical guidance on steps that you can take to keep young workers safe.
Hear from a local business
At each briefing, a local employer will share their experiences and discuss ways they have engaged with their young employees to improve safety.
These briefings are held in association with EML and WorkSafe Victoria.
