Thousands of teen workers injured every year
5/11/2012Workplace injuries do not happen to adults only. New research shows that approximately 20,000 teen workers are injured on the job with 88 of those being fatalities.
Workplace death and injury can be from a range of things including poorly regulated work environments, defectice work equipment and insufficient training. Out of all of the teen jobs, farming is the most hazardous.
The research also found that 26 percent of all employees younger than 18 worked at least part of their work day without adult supervision and almost 1/3 of them reported to have had no safety or health training.
