Make the safety and health of young workers a priority, Safe Work Australia urged this Workers’ Memorial Day.
The recent World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Worker’s Memorial Day prompted Safe Work Australia to remind all employers, managers and leaders of the importance of prioritising young workers’ health and safety.
In a statement Safe Work Australia encouraged people to promote Generation Safe and Healthy.
This group of people are at an increased risk of injury and illness due to their inexperience, lack of maturity and awareness of workplace health and safety responsibilities.
It’s important that employers, supervisors and leaders provide these young workers with the right tools and training to work safely and encourage them to speak up about health and safety concerns.
