Young workers at risk

A new report by CTV Vancouver explores the risk of workplace injury for young people. 

Statistics show teenagers are more at risk of getting hurt on the job than any other age group.

“It’s not just young workers at risk, but it’s new workers,” said Chris Macleod, a population and public health professor. “If you’re new to a job, new to an industry, you’re at a much higher risk of having an accident.”
