With the rapidly increasing number of employees staying in the workforce past retirement age, there is a growing concern for aging worker injury prevention and wellness. There are many challenges that face this group of people, due to age-related changes including diminished hearing/eyesight, stress tolerance, musculoskeletal disorders, increases in obesity, and increases in co-morbidities. If not appropriately addressed, these issues could lead to serious, long-term injury in the workplace. Design innovations, specialized training, and job accommodations will be essential for maximizing productivity and injury prevention in the aging workforce.
