Young worker awareness
Brock University’s Health, Safety & Wellness (HSW) department is committed to providing resources to the Brock community, including Brock students as they enter the workforce. These resources are intended to support and enhance knowledge in occupational health, safety and wellness.
Many young workers are not fully aware of their health and safety rights. All employees are entitled to comprehensive health and safety training to fully prepare them for their work duties and responsibilities. In addition, all employees have the right to KNOW about hazards in the workplace, the right to REFUSE unsafe work and the right to PARTICIPATE in the workplace to identify and resolve workplace health and safety concerns.
If you’re a young worker, regardless of where you work, a terrific resource to spark conversation with a parent, friend, or coworker is Bring Safety Home. This resource was created to stimulate conversations between parents and young workers about health and safety in the workplace. Additionally, the Ministry of Labour (MOL) is also an excellent option for free Health and Safety Awareness training.
