In media: Elderly construction workers injured

Published: 29 July 2013

A survey of 3,500 construction workers shows that the older you are the greater the risk of serious injury. This says SVT.

– A serious injury does not mean that accidents occur more frequently in this group. However, the consequences for the elderly could be greater than for a younger person. We know that a big part of serious work accidents covers falls, slips and that type of accidents, says Magnus Stenberg, researcher at Luleå University of Technology.
