Se sabe que varios sectores tienen un alto riesgo de siniestralidad laboral, como la construcción, ingeniería, fontanería, mampostería de piedra, canteras y trabajos de fundición. Sabiendo que los estudiantes de hoy son los trabajadores del mañana, HSE ha identificado a los estudiantes jóvenes en formación profesional como un grupo objetivo clave para reducir la siniestralidad. El propósito de esta investigación fue ayudar al HSE a mejorar sus comunicaciones con los jóvenes estudiantes relevantes para ayudar a crear conciencia sobre los riesgos, cambiar actitudes y comportamientos e incorporar buenas prácticas sobre las medidas de control adecuadas.
 
Se sap que diversos sectors tenen un alt risc de sinistralitat laboral, com la construcció, enginyeria, lampisteria, maçoneria de pedra, pedreres i treballs de fosa. Sabent que els estudiants de hui són els treballadors del demà, HSE ha identificat als estudiants joves en formació professional com un grup objectiu clau per a reduir la sinistralitat. El propòsit d'aquesta investigació va ser ajudar al HSE a millorar les seues comunicacions amb els joves estudiants rellevants per a ajudar a crear consciència sobre els riscos, canviar actituds i comportaments i incorporar bones pràctiques sobre les mesures de control adequades.
 
A number of industries are known to be at high risk from occupational Long Latency Diseases (LLD), including construction, engineering, plumbing, stonemasonry, quarry and foundry work. Recognising that the learners of today are the workers of tomorrow, the HSE has identified young learners in Vocational Education and Training (VET) as a key target group for reducing the incidence of LLD in some of these industries. The purpose of this research was to help the HSE improve its communications with relevant young learners to help raise awareness of risks, change attitudes and behaviours and to embed good practice about appropriate control measures. While young learners recognise the importance of Health and Safety (H&S) information, there are a number of challenges around successfully communicating the risks of LLD. These include the complexity of LLD and a wide lack of clarity about what constitutes LLD and how they can be prevented. There are also challenges with translating what young learners learn in the classroom into practice on site because of the influence of more experienced colleagues and the pressures of resources and time. Communicating H&S messages more effectively will require greater clarity among wider stakeholders about the nature and risks of LLD. Communications could also be aided by clear, concise, visually engaging communication tools. The delivery of H&S messages by trusted messengers with experience in a young learner's chosen vocation is beneficial as is focusing information towards more junior or 'new' learners not yet overwhelmed by detail on Health and Safety. This report and the work it describes were funded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
