Protecting Young Workers in Retail Jobs
June, which is National Safety Month, is an appropriate time to focus on young workers, as they head out of school and into the workforce. Many of them will find jobs in the retail industry, a leading employer of young workers in the United States. In 2014, there were approximately 18.1 million workers younger than age 24 in the U.S. These workers represented 13% of the U.S. workforce. Young workers have high workplace injury rates, explained in part by the high frequency of hazards in their typical workplaces. In retail work settings, for instance, slippery floors and use of knives and energized...
Involving young workers in occupational safety and health
Involving young workers in occupational safety and health (OSH) is a powerful tool to help strengthen workplace safety culture and performance. Getting young people to buy in to the safety culture of a workplace involves engaging them in OSH; empowering them; and giving them a voice that is heard. This E-fact advises how. Source:
Teen worker safety training
Methods used, lessons taught, and time spent Safety training is strongly endorsed as one way to prevent teens from performing dangerous tasks at work. The objective of this mixed methods study was to characterize the safety training that teenagers receive on the job. From 2010 through 2012, focus groups and a cross-sectional survey were conducted with working teens. The top methods of safety training reported were safety videos (42 percent) and safety lectures (25 percent). The top lessons reported by teens were “how to do my job” and “ways to spot hazards.” Males, who were...
Accueil et formation à l’embauche des étudiants occupant un emploi pendant l’année scolaire
Le cumul études-travail a crû de manière significative au cours des 30 dernières années au Québec. Plusieurs entreprises, notamment dans le secteur des services, comptent sur les étudiants pour pourvoir une partie de leurs besoins en main-d’œuvre. Ces emplois permettent aux étudiants de développer une première expérience professionnelle, mais ils les exposent également, tôt dans leur parcours professionnel, à certains risques professionnels qui peuvent avoir des impacts sur leur santé...
Why are occupational health and safety training approaches not effective?
Understanding young worker learning processes using an ergonomic lens Young workers are frequently injured at work. Education and awareness strategies to prevent injuries among young workers are common but they are often ineffective. These approaches emphasize teaching, rather than learning strategies, and appear to contradict recent competency-based developments in education science. This study aimed to gain insight into the actual safety skills learning process of adolescents in an internship in a high school vocational training program. The results are based on auto and allo-confrontation interviews...
Occupational health literacy and work-related injury among U.S. adolescents
Building on the concept of 'health literacy' used in the U.S., we developed an analogous measure specific to safety in the workplace labeled 'occupational health literacy' (OHL) and investigated whether OHL is a protective factor against work-related injury (WRI) among adolescents. Using cross-sectional survey data from 2262 14 to 18-year olds in five high schools across the US, we found that OHL (level of occupational safety and health (OSH) information and training received combined with knowledge and awareness of OSH information and concepts) is positively associated with WRI...

Mainstreaming occupational safety and health into university education
Future engineers, architects, medical professionals and business administrators and managers will all need to take account of OSH in aspects in their working lives. This report presents a variety of cases concerning how OSH has been included in university-level education. Of most interest were examples where OSH was embedded in the programme of other undergraduate studies, such as a general engineering undergraduate course or a business studies course. However, few examples were found where OSH/risk education had been truly embedded within the curriculum of individual courses. Source : http://oldbookshop...
Safety and Health for Younger Workers
This is the time of year that many young people begin thinking about summer jobs. For some teenagers, these jobs might be viewed as elective—that is, opportunities to gain work experience, spend time productively, or earn some spending money. For others, however, especially those in their late teens and early adulthood, these jobs pay the rent and buy groceries. New research from NIOSH illustrates that more needs to be done to ensure that as young people join the workforce they are better protected from hazards. On average each year from 1998 to 2007, about 800,000 workers 15 to 24 years...
Self-Reported and Reported Injury Patterns in Contemporary Dance Students
Abstract: Background: Injury is a major concern among dancers, as currently rates are reported as being high. The purpose of the present study was to assess the incidence and details of injuries across an academic year at a full-time contemporary dance school. Methods: A questionnaire was distributed to 57 dancers at the end of their first academic year. Reported injury information was also retrieved from a database as collected from a physiotherapist over the same period. Results: Differences were found between the reported and self-reported information, particularly with reference to shin injuries...
Preventing risks to young workers
Policy, programmes and workplace practices Young workers (15–24 years) are a very vulnerable group when it comes to occupational safety and health (OSH). However, the majority of OSH risks are preventable — whether they involve young or older workers — by applying the principles of risk assessment and putting in place the necessary preventive measures. To support information exchange on best practice, the agency has produced a report about how the occupational safety and health of young workers can be managed at policy and practice level. The report includes a variety of case...
OSH in the school curriculum
To underpin occupational safety and health (OSH) education in schools and colleges it is necessary to formalise it in curriculum requirements. The report reviews how the Member States have been including OSH and risk education in their national curricula. Source:
Good practice in preventing risks to young workers
Young people are more at risk of harm from work for a variety of reasons. They lack experience and maturity, awareness of risks, and skills and training; they may be unaware of their rights and employers’ duties regarding health and safety; and they may be reluctant to speak out about problems and keen to please their new employer. They therefore need to be placed in safe and suitable jobs that are matched to their skills and mental and physical abilities and given adequate training and supervision. Source:
Young people with dyslexia may be at higher risk of work injuries
Young people with dyslexia may be at greater risk of getting hurt on the job, according to a new study from the Institute for Work & Health (IWH). “The early indicators are that dyslexia contributes to higher injury rates among young workers,” says IWH Scientist Dr. Curtis Breslin, who led the study. “It could be that the particular problems with reading, spelling and writing that characterize dyslexia make it more difficult to understand and remember safety training or contribute to poor supervisor-worker communications.”

Summer workforce includes vulnerable new workers
Every summer employers hire thousands of new workers, particularly in seasonal industries. This influx of new staff, many of them young, can be challenging. Studies tell us new workers are much more likely to suffer a work-related injury during their first month on the job. This, combined with a lack of training and work experience, can dramatically increase the risk of injury.
“Newness” and the risk of occupational injury
Research is emerging that “newness” is associated with a higher risk of work injury. Whether it's young workers, workers of all ages new to their jobs, recent immigrants or employees in newly established firms, the evidence indicates that these workers face higher injury rates and/or more hazardous jobs. This Issue Briefing summarizes the key research behind these findings and explores the implications for policy-makers in governments and health and safety service providers.
More Action Needed on Work-related Road Safety
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents today welcomed a report from the House of Commons Transport Committee saying that more needs to be done to investigate deaths in work-related road accidents. Kevin Clinton, RoSPA Head of Road Safety, said: “RoSPA has been campaigning about managing occupational road risk for more than 10 years and we believe the Health and Safety Executive could have a much greater part in this.” The report – Ending the Complacency: Road Safety Beyond 2010 – estimates that there were between 750 and 1,000 deaths on the road last year linked...
