Show all parts of this guide

1. General information

Children are defined as people not over compulsory school age, even if they do not go to school. You must not employ a child under the age of 13.

Young people are people of 18 and under. You have to take in to account that these people do not have the knowledge and experience that adults can be expected to have. So you have an additional responsibility to make sure there is a good risk assessment, supervision and training for them.
