Popis

This publication seeks to review in depth what risks young workers are exposed to at work and what the consequences of these exposures are, in both the short term and the long term, for these young workers. This is done by analysing not only statistics and studies but also selected case studies of prevention. By bringing this wealth of information together, EU-OSHA hopes to contribute to the better protection of young people as they embark on their working lives and, therefore, to their improved health throughout their working lives.
