Many teenagers operate hazardous equipment at work and fail to receive appropriate safety training, according to a new study by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health. The study also reported that 37 percent of employees under the age of 16 have worked later in the evening than allowed under federal child labor laws.
Outlook: Expect this study to crank up OSHA’s attention to child labor laws. To refresh your memory on when and where teen employees can work, visit www.dol.gov/dol/topic/youthlabor.
