What Young Workers Are Saying About Our Training

Young Workers learn about ergonomics testing out grip strength using pencils.

Years ago when we started conducting training for young workers, we quickly realized that your average safety and health seminar just wasn't going to cut it. Utilizing resources developed by some amazing programs we reference on our Resources page, we developed an interactive 6-8 hour primer for young workers entering the workforce. We are proud of this program and believe that it does a great job educating young workers, but don't take our word for it. Hear what some young workers from our training this week had to say!

“I feel very empowered.”

“The workshops were really fun and interesting. Learned a lot and had fun too!”

“I thought it was very good and a well-run program. I think that I will benefit from what I learned. I am glad that I was able to participate.”

“It opens up your eyes more so that you see what your rights are and that you need to make sure that you have been truly trained for the job.”

“I believe it was good course with very helpful, important information. Every younger teen should see/ participate in this class.”
