Share - Empower - Prevent

Every minute a young worker (age 15-25) is injured on the job and every day one young worker loses their life in a workplace incident. Join our social media campaign to bring awareness to youth, educators, parents, supervisors, and employers about the importance of workplace safety. We can increase hazard awareness and avoidance skills. We can empower youth with knowledge of their workplace rights and responsibilities. We can prevent injuries, avoid illnesses, and save lives.

Spread the Word

We have designed a social media campaign filled with valuable public resources. We invite organizations and individuals to join the conversation by sharing these workplace safety messages.

Help Youth

Even if your organization’s social media feed isn’t followed by a lot of young people, it probably is followed by adults who care about young workers so share these messages to empower caring adults to help the youth in their life stay safe.

Support Education

Impactful messages, posts, and blogs are important conversation starters that open the door to education. The safety and health resources compiled here can be incorporated into formal skills education and on-the-job training.
