With COVID-19 outbreak and climate emergency requiring urgent global action, active participation of young people is of paramount importance. This is why the International Youth Day, 12 August brings the focus on engaging youth at all levels of society for meaningful initiatives to alleviate the present challenges.

EU-OSHA contributes by nurturing a culture of healthy workplaces, indispensable for young workers’ safety, health competences and sustainable working lives.

We want to help the 120 million of young people reaching working age every year by providing them with tailored information about their safety and health at work.

Check out our section on occupational safety and health and young workers.

Use Napo films and ‘Napo in the workplace’ resources to raise awareness and start discussions with young workers about musculoskeletal disorders.
