Statistics show that every five days, one teen is killed on the job. According to the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health there are about 70 work-related fatalities each year among this young work population. Additionally, more than 200,000 young workers are injured on the job; 70,000 of them require emergency room treatment. Furthermore, data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate that younger workers continue to have the highest rates of work-related deaths, injuries, and illnesses. Expressing concern for young workers, the former Secretary of Labor, stated, “Today’s youth will be the workforce of the 21st Century. One of my priorities for the U.S. Department of Labor is to assist America’s youth in preparing to enter that workforce.”
