Young Worker Program

Young workers experience high rates of job-related injury. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health developed a foundational curriculum in occupational safety and health titled “Youth at Work – Talking Safety. This curriculum is data-driven and routinely updated based on current research and changes to rules and regulations.  

UW DEOHS OSHCE has collected and reviewed occupational health curriculum over the years for young workers, and these materials are located in the archive folder.  These are not routinely updated. We are making these available because we continue to receive requests for these materials.
