SafeYouth@Work Project: Building a Generation of Safe and Healthy Workers The US Department of Labor-funded SafeYouth@Work project aims to promote the occupational safety and health (OSH) of young workers, with a focus on those aged 15 to 24. Every day, approximately 6,400 people die from occupational accidents or diseases and 860,000 people are injured on the job. Younger workers suffer the highest rate of work-related injuries, due to: lack of awareness of safety rules and worker rights; limited job skills and work experience; lack of training in job tasks, hazard prevention or avoiding exposure to harmful agents; long working hours and unsuitable job assignments. The ILO SafeYouth@Work project aims to promote the occupational safety and health (OSH) of young workers, with a focus on those aged 15 to 24. SafeYouth@Work operates at a national systems level to build a sustainable and prevention-focused OSH culture. The US Department of Labor-funded project is a cornerstone of the ILO’s OSH Global Action for Prevention (OSH GAP) Flagship Programme and is based on improved performance in four strategic areas: 1. OSH Data and Information including reporting of occupational accidents and diseases 2. OSH Law and Policy 3. OSH Capacity 4. OSH Knowledge and Awareness
