ACHIEVING SUCCESS TIPS

An Aging Workforce

Statistics between 2005 and 2010 show the number of workers between the ages of 55 to 64 increased 52%. (U.S. Current Population Survey, Bureau of Labor Statistics.)

 

An employer with a majority of workers in this age range must be aware of the positives and negatives of this associated risk.

  • An older workforce may lead to fewer claims because these workers have longevity, are more experienced, and loyal.
  • However, injured older workers tend to have longer, more severe claims, taking longer to heal and requiring more time off work.
  • Understand the specific injury risks and barriers to healing and return to work for older workers and put programs in place to address these issues proactively.

Consider at-home recuperation and work-at-home programs.

 

 Focus on retraining and safety to overcome resistance of older  workers to new technologies and to prevent a spike in claims.
