Young Workers

Young Nova Scotians entering the workforce are at a greater risk of suffering a workplace injury. In fact, young workers and new workers are five times more likely to be hurt in the first month on a new job than workers who have been in their current job more than one year.

  • If you are a young Nova Scotian, you need to be aware of safety and what you need to do to stay safe on the job.
  • If you are a parent, you need to talk to your children about staying safe.
  • If you are an employer, you have special responsibilities to young workers.

Don't leave your words behind. Check out these resources for parents, employers and young workers.
