Our Vision: SafeYouth@Work

Why

  • Because young workers suffer up to a 40 per cent higher rate of non-fatal occupational injuries than older workers.
  • Because young workers today are the future of work! Their safety and well-being will shape the world of tomorrow.
  • Because safe and healthy working conditions are a right!
  • Because it is the vison of the United Nation’s Secretary General to place young people’s interest at the center of the agenda and take young people seriously

Our Mission:

 

The SafeYouth@Work Congress (2-6 September 2017) brought together 125 young employers, workers, unionists and students at the XXI World Congress for Safety and Health at Work to build a global network of young champions for occupational safety and health.
