Know your responsibilities

It’s your responsibility to keep your young workers safe at work – so know the regulation, and talk to your staff about safety in the workplace.

  • What should my employees expect of me?

    It’s your responsibility to create a safe and healthy work environment for your workers, including:

    • Providing your workers with thorough on-the-job training and orientation
    • Making sure everyone has proper supervision to do their job safely
    • Creating an environment where workers can ask questions and raise any safety concerns
    • Correcting unsafe conditions promptly
    • Providing personal protective equipment (PPE) as soon as it’s needed — and demonstrate how to use it properly
    • Investigating and reporting all incidents to WorkSafeBC
