A new study by researchers at the University of Otago found that age plays a major role in the likelihood of workplace injuries.

Researchers investigated the incidence, nature and cause of work related injuries in older New Zealand workers and according to the study, workplace injuries increased with the age of workers.

They found that during the years 2009-2013 more than 1 in 5 workplace injury claims were by older workers between the ages of 55-79 years.

The highest rate of work injury claims from workers between 70-79, and these workers also represented the highest percentage of fatal injury among workers in the 55-79 year old category.

The researchers also found that male workers of all ages had higher rates of injury than females. Read more at http://content.safetyculture.com.au/news/index.php/11/work-related-injuries-among-older-workers-set-increase-study-says/#.Wiw2eje1vIV
