14 serious life changing injuries happen to young workers in B.C. every week.
To try to prevent those, WorkSafe BC has been running a campaign called “Listen to your Gut” to encourage young workers to speak up if they feel they are facing a potentially unsafe situation.
Trudi Rondeau, of WorkSafe BC, says we can all ensure our young workers are safe……
On the flip side of the young workers campaign, WorkSafe BC invited employers in industry sectors with high numbers of young worker serious injury claims to participate in a series of videos about the lessons they learned in their first jobs.
Those sectors are restaurants in the service sector, the construction sector and the trade sector.
