What you need to knowYoung workers are defined as being aged between 15-24 years. They can be engaged in the workforce in any number of ways including full time or part time employment, casual employment, apprentices, trainees and volunteers.
Generally speaking, they lack workplace experience, may have limited life experiences and have differing levels of maturity. Due to this, as an employer, these workers may need to be managed and monitored differently to older workers when it comes to workplace safety.
