Managing the health and safety of trainees, those on work experience placements and volunteers need not be any different to managing the health and safety of employees generally. The main additional consideration that employers should take note of, as this topic describes, is that of inexperience and an under-appreciation of the risks that may be encountered in the workplace. The trainee or person on work experience may never have been in a work environment before. Additional supervision is likely to be necessary in workplaces other than low-risk environments.
