Our Vision: SafeYouth@Work
- 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
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.
