In Working Order – an OHS toolkit for young workers


In Working Order is aimed at middle years students and provides videos and lesson plans covering the fundamentals of workplace safety. This is a Workcover NSW publication and the links provided are for the NSW legislation. However, the student activities cover universal topics such as OHS terms, strategies for staying safe at work, and identifying risks and hazards.

The videos included on the DVD packaged with the kit are particularly useful. They consist of staged interviews with young people working in different jobs. The young workers discuss how they received a workplace injury and what was done to prevent further injuries occurring.
