Did you know that young workers suffer the highest rate of injury and illness on the job due to a lack of awareness of safety rules and rights, training and experience? 


The ILO SafeYouth@Work Project is launching a global media competition to help put youth vision and voice at the centre of discussion on preventing workplace accidents and diseases. The media competition is carried out in conjunction with the International Media Festival for Prevention and the XXI World Congress on Safety and Health at Work, and welcomes creative and engaging multimedia submissions highlighting ideas that speak to young people. Submission categories include film, photography, drawing, music and writing. Young people with a creative idea that doesn't fit into one of these categories can submit their creation through the innovative "Surprise Us!" category.

The competition was launched THIS WEEK and is open to all young people 15-24. Please share this announcement widely and help SafeYouth@Work in building a generation of safe and healthy workers!


The SafeYouth@Work Media Competition is an opportunity to show what “Safety and Health at Work” means to young people around the world.

The Prize
Winning entries to the SafeYouth@Work media competition will be featured at the XXI World Congress for Safety and Health at Work, taking place in Singapore, 3-6 September 2017. Submissions will be presented at an awards ceremony before an international audience of some 4,000 participants. In addition, selected winners will be invited to Singapore to share their ideas on safety and health, at the World Congress.  
SafeYouth@Work aims to promote the occupational safety and health (OSH) of young workers around the world, with a focus on those aged 15 to 24. The project is supported by the 
USDOL Office of Child Labor, Forced Labor & Human Trafficking and forms part of the ILO’s Global Action for Prevention (OSH-GAP), Flagship Programme. The OSH-GAP is administered by ILO’s Labour Administration, Labour Inspection/Occupational Safety and Health (LABADMIN) Branch.
