Young People at Work - a Guide for Employers is part of the Occupational Health & Safety Information Service's online subscription. Bringing you a comprehensive selection of legislation, regulations, guidance, standards, including BSI and best practice which is
updated daily, you can find documents on a wide range of subject areas such as Food & Drink, Environmental Health, Environmental Management, Fire & Offshore Safety.
This revised guide is aimed at all employers who employ or are considering taking on young people. It should also be helpful for their parents or guardians and others concerned with their health and safety in the workplace, including those who organise work experience. Young people, especially those new to the workplace, will be facing unfamiliar risks from the job they will be doing and from the working environment. They are seen particularly at risk because of their possible lack of awareness of existing or potential risks, immaturity and inexperience. The guide outlines the legal responsibilities of employers under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, which give employers particular responsibilities towards young people they employ.
