A program to empower young people about their workplace safety rights through school work experience programs.
Half of all young workers experience unsafe working conditions, wage-theft, and harassment at work.
Our WHS in Schools Program
We provide free information sessions to ACT schools about your rights at work, including workplace safety rights and responsibilities.
We provide opportunities for young people to take a leading role in the young worker movement to improve workplace safety and awareness of workplace rights.
Too many young people are exploited when they start their very first job. Students United gives young people the skills and confidence to stand up for your rights.
Young workers are twice as likely as older workers to be seriously injured at work. Our WHS in Schools program helps young people navigate their workplace safety rights at the crucial moment they start their first job.

Want your school to participate?
Ever feel that you’ve been ripped off by your boss? Have you felt unsafe at work? Have you felt bullied or harassed?
Or are you a teacher, careers counselor or Work Experience coordinator with students who would benefit from improved awareness of their workplace safety rights?
The WHS in Schools program is a free program run by the Young worker Centre to inform, educate and empower young people about their rights at work.
As part of our program, we will work with you and your school or college to provide training, education and practical experience about your rights at work.
