In the lead up to the World day for health and safety at work (April 28th), here is your third tip for supporting young workers in your workplace.
Tip 3: Encourage young workers to ask for help and guidance
Young workers often feel they have no bargaining power due to a lack of experience and age. Often dangerous tasks will be accepted by young workers simply because they feel they have no say over a senior who has worked in the company for 10 years. Companies should be including all workers and encouraging them to speak up when they are unsure about a task. Encourage young workers to take 2minutes to ask to avoid injuries that could last well over 2months.
