Young Workers More Vulnerable To Workplace Injury
Younger workers are often thought to be immune to workplace injury because of their age and assumed better health. But young and new workers are actually more vulnerable to workplace injury due to lack of experience, lack of supervision, or lack of knowing one’s rights in the workplace.
Leading Workplace Hazards For Young Workers
The top hazards in the workplace for younger workers include:
- Bending and lifting objects
Common in the retail, grocery, material handling, and labor-related jobs, lifting objects can result in strains, sprains, and tears.
- Working on a raised surface
Any job which requires a worker to use stairs, scaffolding, ladders or any other elevated level puts workers at a greater risk for strains, sprains, tears, and fractures.
- Working with sharp items
Those who work in the food service industry, retail clerks, and those who stock shelves often suffer serious cuts and lacerations.
- Working with hot substances and objects
Young workers in the food service and hospitality industries are more susceptible to burns.
- Operating motor vehicles or mobile equipment
Any type of job which requires a worker to operate, ride, or drive a vehicle or work near a moving vehicle increases one’s risk of suffering from a fracture, a strain, a sprain, or a tear.
