Young Persons Risk Assessment Information
As part of our bespoke risk assessment and method statement writing service, we can prepare a specific document for any young people that you may employ.
A young person is defined as anyone under the age of 18, so they often fall under the category of work experience or internships.
When inducting a young person into the workplace, a review of your risk assessment may be necessary if this is the first time you have employed younger people, or if said person has certain needs. This is especially true if the work environment is one of substantial risk such as a factory or construction site.
Remember, a young person will not have as much work experience, if any at all, or, in some cases, as much physical capability as an older person.
Therefore, they may require specific/extensive training and supervision where other, more experienced employees don't.
You also need to consider that a young persons working hours are less than that of someone 18 or over and that there are other labour laws which will differ depending on age.
Our professional safety consultants can prepare this risk assessment for you and clearly communicate to parents, schools and other necessary parties, exactly what risks are involved in the role and what measures have been put into place to reduce or remove this risk.
If you require this writing service or have any queries on the matter, then you can speak directly to one of our advisors on 01237 477 931.
