Health and Safety Induction Checklist – Work Experience
In terms of health and safety law, work experience students or interns are seen as a Company’s employees and should be treated no differently to other young people a Company may employ.
Many young people undertaking work experience will be new to the workplace and are likely to be facing unfamiliar risks from the work they are doing and/or their surroundings. This Health and Safety Induction Checklist enables employers to deliver a structured Health and Safety induction to work experience students and heighten awareness of potential health and safety risks in the workplace.
Existing employers’ liability insurance policies will cover work experience placements provided that the insurer is a member of the Association of British Insurers or Lloyds. Very helpful advice on the health and safety aspects of taking on a work experience student can be found on the website of the Health and Safety Executive.
