July 2018
DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2018-165A

While many young people have thought about working, but have they considered that, while work has many benefits, it also has risks? This video covers Lesson 1, Young Worker Injuries. It explains how to: introduce the topic of workplace safety, assess students’ prior knowledge about workplace safety and health, and teach students that injuries at work are predictable and preventable.

The video also covers the activities in Lesson 1: job safety quiz, Mallory’s Story video, and real life stories of teens injured on the job.
