Handling an Aging and Obese Workforce

Part of the Injury Series

Today’s workforce is older and, shall we say, “less slender” than its counterpart of 50 years ago.

The result is a workforce that is much more susceptible to injuries on the job.

As much as some of your older workers may want to disagree, their bodies at age 65 are much more likely to succumb to injuries they may have escaped when they were 25 or 35.

And a recent study out of Johns Hopkins found that 85% of injured workers were classified as overweight or obese.

So what can you do to reduce the likelihood of injuries in an aging and “husky”-sized workforce?

This Essential Insights is filled with actionable tactics and proven strategies to merge wellness, safety and ergonomics into one highly effective program best suited to today's employees.
