COMPLIANCE IMPLEMENTATION AND IMPROVEMENT STEPS
Evaluate The Condition:
1. Review list of all juveniles in the factory along with the jobs that are currently assigned to them or that could be assigned them.
2. Review the training currently provided at the factory applicable to those job assignments approved for juvenile workers. For each job the tasks should be listed along with the required health, safety and other training that must be completed before starting each job.
3. Assemble and determine the type of guidance and training that has been provided to juvenile workers so far. This includes covering topics that help juveniles understand their responsibilities and how they can act to become good responsible adult citizens.
1. The health, safety and other training content that is communicated to adult workers in the factory should be reviewed and developed further to include additional topics to help juvenile workers act and become good adult working citizens. The training content should be enhanced to help juveniles understand that a good work ethic, following rules and working safely will help them to become successful as they move into adult life.
2. Schedule and conduct any trainings that are needed, but have not yet been given.
3. Keep detailed records of trainings given to each juvenile worker. These should be maintained in a spreadsheet and/or in individual worker files.
The factory may have limited human resources to dedicate to the task, financial limitations or constraints, or a lack of written programs and employee training that commit to performing the task to ensure compliance.
