New and Young Worker Safety for Supervisors

This web book, viewable online from a desktop computer or mobile device, focuses on the need to:

  • Recognize that new and young workers have special supervisory needs
  • Apply a four-step process for training new and young workers (prepare, demonstrate and describe, observe, check progress)
  • Use specific, age-appropriate strategies for training young workers (e.g., keep it interesting, incorporate multimedia where possible, encourage questions, focus on the why)

WorkSafeBC's Supervisor Series is made up of four web books, each focusing on a different aspect of safety supervision. Each web book contains interactive exercises that will challenge your decision-making skills and test your knowledge. Other topics in the series include safety management systems, communication skills, and workplace evaluations.
