WiseUp2Work Day aims to make work safer for under 21s

The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has announced that its National WiseUp2Work Day will be held on Wednesday 30 August 2006.

WiseUp2Work is an initiative by the IOSH to address head-on the issue of safety for the under 21s when they are starting work, apprenticeships or work experience.

The IOSH said that on average, 10 young people are killed and 2,500 badly injured every year.

The aim is to make employers, trainers, youth workers and teachers, and young people themselves, aware of the risks they face in the workplace and what they should be doing to mitigate them.

According to the IOSH, National WiseUp2Work Day is being staged at a time when many young people are embarking upon their careers or starting work experience placements, and are at the highest risk.

WiseUp2Work is sponsored by the Learning and Skills Council and supported by the National Youth Agency and the British Chambers of Commerce.
