To help you keep your children safe on the job, learn more about everyone's rights and responsibilities for workplace health and safety and make it part of the conversation. We have resources that can help.
- This Could Happen to Your Child, a brochure offering advice on how to talk to your children about health and safety before they start work and after they are hired.
- Statistics illustrating injuries to young workers
- Profiles of seriously injured young workers, who are part of our Young Worker Speakers Program, describing how their accidents altered their lives
- Lost Youth: Four stories of injured workers, a dramatic video showing the consequences of a serious workplace injury
Our Young Workers Speaker Program is another way to share the health and safety message with young people. We've compiled a list of volunteer speakers who can talk to your school or parent advisory council (PAC) about health and safety and young worker issues. We have a variety of speakers with unique expertise and experiences ranging from injured young workers to business leaders to health and safety educators.
