A few years ago, when Safety+Health published an article about what some employers are doing to accommodate aging workers, I shared in this column the story of a relative by marriage who has worked most of his adult life in a manufacturing plant, and the toll the physical labor has taken on his body.
I frequently fill out surveys because, as the editor of a magazine, I know how valuable the data can be. As you’ve likely noticed, Safety+Health emails various surveys throughout the year. Every time we send one out, we’re keenly aware that we’re asking you to take time away from your job. But the information you provide is extremely useful.
This month, Safety+Health features an article on the safety of young workers. We haven’t done an article on this topic in some time, focusing instead on other areas while the poor economy left many young job-seekers struggling to find work.
