Webinar details

Young workers have higher injury rates than other worker age groups, which is why the WorkSafe 101 for High Schools initiative is being piloted as a creative approach for preparing young people for entry into the workforce.

WorkSafe 101 includes a number of resources co-designed with Victorian secondary school teachers to help educate and inform young workers about their rights and responsibilities when it comes to workplace safety, to complement classroom learning for students between Years 9 and 12.

In this interactive session, teachers and senior staff can hear from schools involved in the pilot about their experiences and the benefits they've seen, and learn about the next phase of WorkSafe 101's implementation.
