Young Worker Safety and Health Training
The Young Worker Safety Response Center (YWSRC) is funded by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to promote the safety of young workers. There are free resources and training offered by the center.
Youth @ Work: Talking Safety is a free, interactive, skills-based 3-5 hour training program for young people. Even if you already provide safety training using an OSHA or industry-specific course, Youth @ Work can complement your training with additional fun, interactive activities to help build a foundation of health and safety skills. It provides basic information about recognizing and reducing or eliminating all types of workplace hazards, dealing with emergencies on the job and speaking up effectively about safety concerns.
