Vulnerable workers

Scientists at IWH have studied specific groups of workers who may be vulnerable to workplace injury risks in different ways. Vulnerable workers may include young workers, recent immigrants (newcomers), aboriginal peoples, older workers, those new to their jobs or working for new businesses, temporary foreign and seasonal workers, workers holding multiple, part-time or low-paying jobs, and workers involved in temporary employment. This research helps inform prevention efforts for these groups.
