Abstract As a sequel to "Opération JeuneSST", which the IRSST undertook in 2004 to investigate the specific issue of workers under 25 years of age, this exploratory study examined the actions of an organization involved with young employees in small businesses aimed at raising their consciousness with respect to occupational safety and health (OSH), training, encouraging their cooperation with their employers and improving their working conditions. This study report documents several facets of the young persons' working conditions and OHS, and shows that community intervention can help improve these aspects. It also highlights the need for pursuing youth awareness-raising processes and the interest in exploring new ways of taking action in this regard.
