Many Teens Injured on The Job

A new survey of 6,810 teens showed that more than half of them work, and 514 of them had been injured on the job.

“The findings from this study clearly indicate that work-related injuries among youth are a significant health problem,” report Kristina M. Zierold, Ph.D., assistant professor of family and community medicine at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, and Henry A. Anderson, M.D., chief medical officer of the Wisconsin Division of Public Health. Read the report here.
