Are you thinking about employing a young person, but are unsure of the Health and Safety surrounding this? Are you considering taking on a young person in a volunteer or work experience placement, but don’t know what to include in your risk assessment?

You have a responsibility for all of your employees’ Health, Safety and Welfare, no matter what their age. However, employing a young person does need to be treated differently due to their lack of experience in the workplace.
