Safety Tips for Young Workers - WorkSafe

For Young Workers This fact sheet is for you if you are between 15 and 24 years old and are working: Permanently full or part time Casually full or part time It , s more likely to happen to you. Young Victorian workers between the ages of 15 and 24 are more likely to be injured at work and hospitalised than any other age group. We’ve developed this easy reference fact sheet to provide you with the information you need to stay safe at work, so you can come home safely, every day. As a contractor As an apprentice or trainee As part of a work experience or structured workplace learning program Who can you speak to for more information or help? You could speak to your employer, immediate supervisor and/or health and safety representative (‘HSR’) if your workplace has one. HSRs are there to speak up on behalf of the workers they represent on health and safety issues when dealing with your employer or management representative. If your workplace doesn’t have an HSR, anyone can ask your employer to set up a process so one can be elected. You could also speak to an adult you trust – a family member, a teacher or lecturer, or one of your older or more experienced workmates.
