Remember your first job? Were you nervous? Intimidated? Eager to make a good impression? Probably the last thing you wanted to do was ask your supervisor a "stupid" question.
Unfortunately, millions of young workers, especially those starting their first job, may not always ask the questions they should about workplace safety.
Texas Mutual is doing its part to mold teens into safe workers for life. But we need employers, teens and their parents to help us.
Consider the statistics:
- Workplace injuries are the fourth-leading cause of death among Americans age 10 to 19.
- Nationally, about 230,000 teens suffer work-related injuries each year, and 77,000 of them go to the emergency room.
- About one-third of teen workers have not had workplace safety training.
