Workplace injury statistics released

Many workers in Pennsylvania are familiar with the complications that can arise out of workers' compensation claims. A report released by Liberty Mutual shows the heavy toll such incidents have taken on businesses in recent years and details some of the primary causes of these injuries. Given the high costs of such incidents for employers and employees alike, it's worthwhile to take a moment to better understand what the statistics might mean.

Injury risks among older workers

The number of workers in Pennsylvania at or over the age of 55 is growing, and older workers are expected to make up about a quarter of the nation's workforce by 2022, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. While more experienced workers are often a valuable asset, they also take longer to recover from injuries suffered in workplace. Most experts say that economic factors are preventing employees from retiring early, and the numbers are expected to increase sharply in the coming years as the baby boom generation ages.
