Young Workers

Did you know that young workers, aged 15-24, are among the highest risk groups for workplace injury?

It is important for everyone, especially young workers, to understand the importance of workplace safety, and the WCB has information and services to help.
  • The What You Don't Know campaign provides tips for you, as a young worker, to take responsibility for your own safety at work and make a safe place for everyone around you.
  • Resources are available for you, as an employer of young workers to support, train and supervise your young workers to do their jobs safely.
  • The WCB offers youth education services to provide training and education to anyone with a stake in young worker safety. We also provide resources for teachers and additional support in the form of in-person delivery of classroom presentations and workshops.
