Protecting Young Workers

Posted by Maisha Meminger - On June 01, 2010 (EST)

The Federal Network for Young Worker Safety & Health (FedNet) seeks to reduce the risk of occupational injuries and illnesses among workers between the ages of 14-24. The group's work includes looking for ways to protect children of agricultural workers from overexposure to the sun when they accompany their parents to the fields (since they can not afford daycare), to the development of a pocket guide on silo safety following the death of a young worker in a grain elevator. The 11 federal agencies making up FedNet develop strategies and resources to offer education, training and outreach that ensures young workers are aware of their right to a safe workplace and that employers meet their responsibility to provide it.
