Safe Jobs for Youth is an annual public awareness campaign that highlights the importance of preventing young workers from getting injured on the job.

Every 6 minutes, somewhere in the U.S. a teenager is injured seriously enough on the job to go to a hospital emergency room. 30-50 teens die from their injuries each year. These injuries and deaths can be prevented if we:

  • Know the laws
  • Make sure teens are doing appropriate work
  • Make sure teen workers are trained and supervised
  • Help teens learn to ask for help when they need it.

 

The objective is to protect young workers from injury by raising community awareness about child labor law protections and workplace health and safety issues. Young workers and allies can celebrate Safe Jobs for Youth by participating in contests to raise awareness.
