The most recent fascicle based on QLSCD data on work, health and safety among 15-year-olds is the subject of a video on the website of the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail. This video answers several questions:

Why do these teenagers choose to work?
Do many teenagers injure themselves at work?
What are some possible strategies for action?

The first edition of the “In 2001... I’ll be 5 years old!” pre-test was carried out in 1996, marking the first steps of I am, I'll be! A symposium entitled Les 20 ans de l’ÉLDEQ : De la naissance à la connaissance will take place on May 10 as part of the 2016 Acfas Conference that will be held at the UQAM.

The Institut de la statistique du Québec published the first fascicle of volume 8 entitled Portrait du travail et de la santé et de la sécurité du travail chez les jeunes de 15 ans au Québec (French version only). This publication, produced in collaboration with the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST), addresses the following points: characteristics of entry into the workforce among 15-year-old Quebecers, reasons given for having or not having a job during the school year, type of work, number of hours worked, work schedules and working conditions. In addition, it presents an overview of workplace injuries and the means used to raise awareness about workplace hazards.
