Summer Job Safety for Young People

Summer Job Safety for Young People

With the school year over, many teens and young adults will begin working at summer jobs. Especially for younger teens, these seasonal employment opportunities may be their first experience in the workforce, and their first real opportunity to learn how, and why, to always put safety first.
