HIRING YOUNG WORKERS FOR SUMMER EMPLOYMENT

Every summer many businesses hire young workers for part time employment. It may be an employee’s son, daughter, grandchild, neighbor or the kid that lives down the street.


In Saskatchewan young workers (between ages of 15-24) enter the workforce looking to make some extra money. Companies hire young workers to help fill the void, while their existing full time workers take advantage of summer vacation time.


Some questions you may want to ask before a young worker begins work at your location this summer:


  • Are young workers given a proper orientation?
  • Are they given proper training so they can fulfill their job   responsibilities?
  • Are they wearing the proper PPE?
  • Are they receiving adequate supervision?
  • Do they know who to talk to if they have safety questions/concerns?


MSA does offer many other free courses and webinars for students. Click here for more information: Training for Young Workers

Training

On August 11th we will be offering Safety Fundamental Training for business Owners, Managers and Supervisors. This recognized training course provides critical information on understanding your safety roles and legislated responsibilities. If you have completed this training course in the past, it is a good idea to complete this training again to stay up to date with current legislation. To learn more or register click here: Live Virtual Training Registration
