New Teen Safety Site

Keeping America's working teens safe and healthy while on the job is the goal
of a new web site unveiled by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration
(OSHA) of the U.S. Department of Labor. The Teen Workers safety and health page
is part of the agency's contribution to the Department of Labor's new
initiative on young workers and is now OSHA's premier site for teen worker
safety and health information.

The teen safety and health site educates young workers, parents, employers and
educators on workplace safety. The site offers educational resources such as
fact sheets on workplace rights and responsibilities, hazards on the job, ways
to prevent injuries, work hours, job restrictions, and more. It also links to
states that have special web sites or initiatives designed for young workers.

The new teen safety and health site can be accessed from the Department of
Labor's YouthRules! Web site (www.dol.gov), or through the OSHA Web site
(www.osha.gov) A-Z index under "Youth" or under "What's New."
