cover page - Promoting Safe Work for Young Workers

This guide is for anyone interested in young workers safety and health issues. It is based on the experiences of three NIOSH-funded community-based young worker projects. Local health departments, school-to-career programs, and occupational safety and health professionals are but a few of the groups with the capacity and mission to initiate a young worker project in their communities or to implement an activity described in this guide. The three projects featured were all based in urban settings. However, many of the approaches can be applied to small towns or rural settings.
