Risk factors for work injury among youth: a systematic review
Reasons for the study
Studies have found that young workers are more likely than older workers to sustain work injuries. As a result, significant resources have been spent on young worker safety programs. However, these programs were developed without a comprehensive look at the factors that lead young workers to get injured. IWH undertook a systematic review to determine what factors are associated with work injury and illness among young workers.
