OSHA Targets Young Workers With Summer Safety Campaign

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, workers under age 25 are around twice as likely to suffer an on-the-job injury. With many Ohio students starting summer jobs this month, OSHA's warnings about safety rights awareness are a timely reminder for countless families.

One big reason that younger workers face higher injury rates is probably that many work in jobs that involve environmental dangers. For example, young people who work outdoors as painters or lifeguards could encounter heat-related problems. While heat exposure might not seem like a particularly dangerous problem, thousands of workers suffer from heat-related conditions every year.

Even more concerning is the likelihood that heat exposure can complicate an already dangerous work environment. For example, a college-age painter who spends too much time in the sun becomes much more likely to fall from a ladder or roof, potentially suffering a serious brain injury.

When a workplace injury occurs, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
