Youth in Agriculture
Each year, over 2 million farm/agricultural workers under 20 years old are exposed to health and safety hazards in the workplace and, unfortunately, some suffer injuries or even lose their lives. As is the case with all farmworkers, employers are legally responsible for ensuring a reasonably-safe working environment with any safety hazards mitigated to the best of the employer's ability while, simultaneously, young workers remain responsible for acting with appropriate care and caution to ensure their own safety at all times.
Remember that farm/agricultural workers have the rights to:
- Work in conditions which do not pose risks of serious harm;
- Review records of work-related injuries and illnesses;
- Access information and training about safety hazards, how to mitigate them, and all applicable OSHA workplace-standards;
- File complaints to request an OSHA inspection of the workplace if there is reason to believe the employer is in violation of OSHA standards;
- Raise health/safety concerns and/or report an injury without retaliation.
