Young Workers Protection

Join the Effort to Protect Teen Workers at their Jobs

OSHA | Young Workers – You have rights! | Occupational Safety and Health Administration

Several safety organizations, including OSHA, NIOSH, ASSP and the NSC, are sponsoring a Teen Safe Summer Job Social Media Campaign to increase awareness and promote workplace safety and health resources for teen workers. The 2021 theme is “Keeping teen workers safe is everyone’s job!”

The Keep Teen Workers Safe website features many resources for educators who are currently engaging with students and their parents remotely due to COVID-19, including training materials and information from various organizations.

OSHA also has resources on their website: Safe Work for Young Workers. There is also a short video from OSHA regarding Young Workers’ Rights.

The educational resources and other materials are designed to help teen workers learn more about staying safe on the job when they return to work.
