Youth Care Projects Policies & Publication Resources
Health and Safety is the responsibility of both the employer (Youth Care Projects), its staff, interns, partners and the community. As an employer, we are responsible for health and safety in our workplace. These policies and publications have therefore been compiled to reduce the risks of workplace incidents and provide a safe working environment.
