May 2 - 8, 2021
The WSCC's celebration of Safety and Health Week will be held virtually in 2021.
This year, the WSCC is focusing on the Young Workers' Program, and our Safety Spotlight for the season: fatigue.
Did you know...
- Workers under 25 years of age are at greater risk for workplace injuries. Young workers have fewer years of on-the-job experience and safety training. They might not know to ask questions when they don't know how to perform their job safely, and often need closer supervision for certain tasks. WSCC's Young Workers' Program has useful guidance and information for employers, young workers, parents, and educators to help keep young workers safe on the job.
When is tired TOO tired?
- Feeling fatigued at work is a health and safety hazard. Fatigue can impair reaction time and decision making and can be a cause of workplace accidents. Watch for WSCC resources on spotting the signs and preventing fatigue related injuries in the workplace.
