Navigating young employee health & safety.

Ensuring the health & safety of young people in the workplace is a responsibility that cannot be understated. These individuals, often in the early stages of their careers, may lack the experience and awareness required to navigate potential hazards effectively. It is imperative for employers to provide comprehensive training, clear safety guidelines, and proper supervision to protect their well-being. These actions can be supported by completing a Young Persons Risk Assessment which will bring to light the specific needs of the young worker and will also assess the environment in which they will be working.

By fostering a culture of safety and investing in the health of young employees, organisations not only meet legal obligations but also create an environment where everyone can learn and work with confidence. Prioritising the health and safety of young people in the workplace not only safeguards their immediate welfare but also sets the foundation for a productive, responsible, and thriving workforce.
