SCOTT’S SAFETY TIP OF THE WEEK - Young and New Workers

The definition of a Young or New Worker is:

• Anyone under the age of 25
• Someone who is new to a workplace and in an unfamiliar situation
• Someone who has transferred from within a workplace to a new position or location

Starting a new job is challenging. Learning the mechanics of the workplace, making an impression with co-workers and supervisors, as well as mastering new tools and skills. Safety should be the first thing new workers are made aware of, and work load or schedule do not preclude safety.

When starting a new job, ask questions. If the procedure is unclear, seek the advice of a supervisor or senior employee to demonstrate the proper safety practice. As a supervisor or a senior employee, have the new worker be aware of their surroundings, and any potential hazards. Being positive towards safety with Young and New Workers creates a culture of safety that stay with them throughout their career.
