Students must always be prepared before coming to work for you!

Each year many enterprises hire students to work in the summer; students the same age as your children die each year working at a summer job.

Imagine for a moment the nightmare experienced by the victim’s family and co-workers. The nightmare becomes even greater when an investigation clearly shows that simple training or a minimum of preparation before starting the job would probably have prevented the catastrophe. In 2010, according to the CSST, 11,658 young people below the age of 25 were injured working at an enterprise like yours. To make matters worse, four of them died. The CSST meets with thousands of young people to make them aware of a culture of prevention. Employers must also be aware of this culture.

Fortunately, there are employers who do the right thing. These people welcome young workers and make them aware of the risks related to their work. These employers ensure compliance with protective measures and respect for both specific and general safety instructions.
