Younger Workers Experience Higher Injury Rates

From 1998-2007, younger workers experienced approximately twice as many nonfatal occupational injuries as older workers, and employers must make changes in workplace environments and practices to protect this population, according to the April 23 Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
The report, conducted by National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), pointed out that younger workers in the United States represent 14 percent of the labor force “and face high risk of injury while on the job.”
