Introducing: Young Worker Injury Prevention for Committees (YWIPC)

Young Worker Injury Prevention for Committees (YWIPC)

We are excited to announce the launch of our latest course, Young Worker Injury Prevention for Committees (YWIPC), in collaboration with SAFE Workers of Tomorrow (SWOT). As a leading provider of industry-specific workplace safety training, we understand the importance of keeping young workers safe on the job.

The YWIPC course will be part of our regular course offerings and is specifically designed for committees responsible for overseeing the safety of young workers. This half-day course will provide information and strategies designed to help committee members better understand their roles and responsibilities and provide insight on how they can support young workers, who are at greater risk of injury, in unsafe situations or hazardous conditions.

Young workers are at a higher risk of work-related injuries than any other age group, so it is more important than ever to provide targeted training programs that address their unique needs. The YWIPC course covers identifying hazards, risk assessments, and creating effective safety policies. The course also includes interactive exercises and case studies to help participants apply what they’ve learned in real-world scenarios.

Introductory offer

The first course starts on April 13, 2023, and as an introductory offer, all registrants get a 50% discount.
