Employing young people – maximising opportunity and managing risk
November 21 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
Speaker: Barbara Hockey, Head of Vulnerable Workers Team, HSE, Birmingham
When young people start their working-life they will be unfamiliar the workplace environment, its associated risks and the behaviour that is expected of them. Barbara Hockey, Head of Vulnerable Workers Team at HSE, Birmingham will therefore cover topics such as ways of assessing whether young workers need additional support to allow them to carry out their work so that they do not put themselves and others at risk and whether, or not, they need one-to-one on-the-job training and/or closer supervision.
Members are encouraged to take part in an interactive discussion with speakers during the meeting and to network with other members over tea or coffee and biscuits after the meeting.
There will be a committee meeting after the main meeting.
