Unsafe is always unacceptable

Worksafe conducted a social experiment to determine if young people could identify an unsafe work environment as well as their rights and responsibility to a safe workplace.

Many young people find themselves working in unsafe conditions which can put them in danger, both mentally and physically. Young workers have the right to feel safe at work, and employers have a responsibility to create a safe working environment. Under the supervision of leading psychologist, Dr Michael Carr-Gregg, we conducted a social experiment where we invited a group of people aged 18yrs – 25yrs to a series of ‘industry information sessions’ and outlined some of the unsafe conditions they could face in the workplace. Each participant was asked whether they would be willing to work in these conditions.
