According to the International Labor Organization, approximately 215 million children work in countries around the world, and more than half of them labor in environments that constitute the worst forms of child labor, including hazardous workplaces and forced labor. Work among young people in the United States, though a common part of our culture and youth development, is also associated with important health risks. This chapter focuses on several aspects of the work environment in which US young workers are employed and examines challenges and opportunities to increasing safety.
