He wanted to earn some extra spending money. Instead, he earned himself a trip to the hospital, a body full of scars, and a story that no one should have to tell.

workers—those aged 15 to 24—represent the next
generation of our workforce. As an employer, educator, supervisor,
parent or community member, you have a responsibility to make
sure they work safely. IAPA can help you implement programs
to properly train and educate young workers so that you can
benefit from their energy, enthusiasm and passion for knowledge
while keeping them safe on the job.
Dedicated to protecting the safety of young workers, IAPA has
developed customized programs to:
- Raise young workers’ awareness of workplace hazards
and motivate them to take health and safety seriously
- Assist employers in understanding the unique training
needs of young workers and meet these needs with interesting,
interactive, cost-effective training programs
- Give local community groups, schools and employers a framework
for hosting a young worker health and safety forum.
