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 the 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?

Please ensure young workers at your location complete our free 60-minute online Introduction to Workplace Safety course to prepare for summer employment

WorkSafe Saskatchewan also offers a young workers readiness course and additional resources to support your business’s youth initiative: Tips for Young Workers

Site Specific Inspection Checklists

Do you need help getting started on facility inspections?

MSA can come to your location and create a site-specific inspection checklist template. This site-specific checklist flows through your facility highlighting specific areas, materials, and equipment to inspect.

Site-specific inspection checklists will save your location time and steps during the inspection process while allowing you to identify new hazards and keep tabs on hazards controls that you have implemented.
