Description

This factsheet summarises a European Risk Observatory report on young workers, which aims to provide a review of the hazards that young workers are exposed to at work. It does this by analysing statistics and studies, and selected case studies of prevention. Many of the sectors and occupations that young people are employed in are characterised by high accident rates and exposure to many workplace hazards. Specific targeted measures need to be taken in terms of education and training, as well as in daily workplace practice. This factsheet provides some recommendations.
