This topic describes how, when employing a young person, the current risk assessment that exists for the workplace should be reviewed to ensure the control measures currently in place are sufficient. Additional measures may be necessary when considering the fact that young people may never have been in a work environment before and may not be familiar with appropriate or safe behaviour. They may be easily influenced or pressured into unsafe work practices by older colleagues or peers, or may be curious and act unpredictably without any regard to instructions, etc that have been given.
