Ontario youth work injury rate declining more steeply, converging with adult rate

Working is a big part of the lives of Canadian teenagers and young adults. One of the most consistent findings in occupational health and safety research over the last two decades is that younger workers have more non-fatal work injuries (and lost-time claims) than adults. Given this tendency, this study sought to examine trends in young worker and adult lost-time claim rates in Ontario in recent years. This type of information is helpful because it provides policy-makers in occupational health and safety with evidence/information to help them determine the best place to target their prevention efforts.
