Welcome to the Young Workers' Health and Safety Website! This site is a project of the California Resource Network for Young Worker Health and Safety. Our goal is to help prevent California's young workers from being injured or killed on the job.

The laws noted at this site are specific to California. If you are in another state, visit our National Young Worker Safety Resource Center page to find your state's labor law agencies and information on the laws in your area.
