Helping older workers in New Jersey stay safe at work

By 2022, it is expected that about 25 percent of all workers around the country will be 55 years of age or older. While older workers provide companies with a wealth of knowledge, they are also more likely to get hurt after a slip, trip or fall. For those who are 65 and older, the incidence rate is 49.5 per 10,000 workers, which is about double the rate for workers under the age of 45.

Winter workplace hazards

Many businesses in New Jersey are at their busiest during the holiday season. As more customers rush in and out of the doors, there can be safety hazards from overcrowding. At the same time, workers are often pushed to their limits during the winter months as the increase in business means more work for them.

Some older patients may benefits from surgery after TBI

New research out of Finland may bring hope to older people in New Jersey suffering from traumatic brain injuries. According to a study from the Department of Neurosurgery at the Helsinki University Hospital, some older patients may respond well to surgical treatment of brain injuries that result from falls or other accidents.
