Ohio employers need to do more for older workers

Although employers in fields like construction say that they like these having these workers on their payrolls because they're less prone to injury and more experienced, older employees who do get hurt take longer to heal than younger workers might. They're also at heightened risk for specific kinds of workplace accidents.

It was revealed at an International Safety Association meeting that inquiries from companies have been made regarding the measurement criteria that is used to determine the expenses of workplace injuries and safety upgrades. While the incidents of on-the-job-injuries have dropped slightly, the rate of workplace injury-related deaths have not dropped.
