Many employers have considerable experience of successfully employing young people or taking on work experience students.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) recently reviewed their guidance to make it easier and less bureaucratic for employers who offer work experience placements. There are very few work activities a young person cannot do due to health and safety law.

Following the guidance means those involved in employing young people for work or work experience will be doing what the law requires.

This guidance from the HSE describes how to keep it simple.
