Why is this eTool so important?

This etool contains practical information to use when conducting safety and health training.

Students and young workers are vital to your workforce because they are enthusiastic and eager to work and learn. Statistically, new or inexperienced individuals are at greater risk of serious or fatal injuries. The construction industry employs less than 3% of all young workers but ranks third in the number of work related fatalities to youth (i.e. 14% of all occupational death to youth under 18).
