October 28th 9:45 am - 10:45 am

Workers can be injured on the job at any age, but young and new employees may be more at risk for workplace injuries. Give your young workers a safe start with a strong, effective, and comprehensive new employee orientation. New workers are often injured due to inadequate or incomplete training, lack of supervision, and inexperience. Young employees may be reluctant to ask questions or seek clarification on safety issues so it’s important to ensure you have an open and effective way to communicate about workplace health and safety.  

In this session, learn how to build effective, comprehensive new employee orientation programs that reduce the risk of injury for young and inexperienced workers.
