Determinants of Workplace Injuries and Violence Among Newly Licensed RNs
Workplace injuries, such as musculoskeletal injuries, needlestick injuries, and emotional and physical violence, remain an issue in U.S. hospitals. To develop meaningful safety programs, it is important to identify workplace factors that contribute to injuries. This study explored factors that affect injuries in a sample of newly licensed registered nurses (NLRNs) in Florida. Regressions were run on models in which the dependent variable was the degree to which the respondent had experienced needlesticks, work-related musculoskeletal injuries, cuts or lacerations, contusions, verbal violence, physical...

Age and Work-Related Health
Insights from the UK Labour Force Survey Data from the UK Labour Force Survey (LFS) are used to examine two methodological issues in the analysis of the relationship between age and work-related health. First, the LFS is unusual in that it asks work-related health questions to those who are not currently employed. This facilitates a more representative analysis than that which is constrained to focus only on those currently in work. Second, information in the LFS facilitates a comparison of work-related health problems that stem from current employment to a more encompassing measure that includes...
Portrait du travail et de la santé et de la sécurité du travail chez les jeunes de 15 ans au Québec
Au Québec, on observe une hausse de la participation de jeunes étudiants de 15 à 19 ans sur le marché du travail (ISQ, 2014a). Dans une perspective de prévention des blessures liées au travail, il est pertinent de recueillir des données probantes sur les caractéristiques et les trajectoires des jeunes qui effectuent une entrée précoce sur le marché du travail. En 2013, l'Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) s'est joint à titre de partenaire...
Perceptions of Supervision Among Injured and Non-Injured Teens Working in the Retail or Service Industry
According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), a teen is injured every 9 minutes at work. Workplace supervision may affect whether teens are injured on the job. Because research on workplace supervision among teens is limited, the objectives of this study were to characterize the perceptions of supervision among injured and non-injured teen workers and assess the characteristics and perceptions of supervisors that may be associated with work-related injuries. In 2011, a cross-sectional survey was conducted among high school students. Teens who worked in retail or...

Employers perceptions of the health and safety of young workers
The aim was to investigate perceptions and attitudes about health and safety and the employment of young people. The work involved a review of published documents and interviews with 14 representatives from employer organisations, schools/academies, work placement organisers and insurers. No documents were found that examined employers' views about young workers and health and safety. However, evidence was found within published documents that links increase of injury in young workers, and a lack of work experience and training, poor awareness of occupational risks, inadequate supervision,...

Prevalence and demographic differences in microaccidents and safety behaviors among young workers in Canada
INTRODUCTION: The present study examines the self-reported frequency of non-lost work time workplace injuries ("microaccidents") and the frequency of three types of work-related safety behaviors (i.e., safety voice, safety compliance, and safety neglect) recalled over a four-week period. METHOD: We analyzed data on microaccidents and safety behaviors from 19,547 young workers (aged 15-25years, Mdn=18years; 55% male) from multiple Canadian provinces. RESULTS: Approximately one-third of all young workers recalled experiencing at least one microaccident at work in the last four weeks. Comparisons...
Overlapping Vulnerabilities

This report focuses on three populations that research indicates are at increased risk for adverse work-related health outcomes—Hispanic immigrants (individuals born in Latin America who currently live in the United...
Reduced sleep duration and history of work-related injuries among Washington State adolescents with a history of working
BACKGROUND: The relationship between sleep and occupational injury risk has not been adequately explored for working adolescents. METHODS: Data were analyzed from the 2010 Washington State Healthy Youth Survey of 8th, 10th, and 12th grade public school students. Teens reported average school and weekend night sleep hours and history of work-related injury that received medical treatment. Multivariable logistic regression evaluated the association between sleep duration and occupational injury. RESULTS: Of 4,144 working teens, 6.4% reported ever having an occupational injury. Teens who sleep ≤5 hr...
Accueil et formation à l’embauche des étudiants occupant un emploi pendant l’année scolaire
Le cumul études-travail a crû de manière significative au cours des 30 dernières années au Québec. Plusieurs entreprises, notamment dans le secteur des services, comptent sur les étudiants pour pourvoir une partie de leurs besoins en main-d’œuvre. Ces emplois permettent aux étudiants de développer une première expérience professionnelle, mais ils les exposent également, tôt dans leur parcours professionnel, à certains risques professionnels qui peuvent avoir des impacts sur leur santé...
Employment and work safety among 12 to 14 year olds
Listening to parents BACKGROUND: Survey research indicates that a surprising number of 12 to 14 year olds in North America engage in some form of paid work, and work-related injuries for this age group are reported at rates similar to older teens. Parents exhibit significant involvement in many aspects of their teens' work and may influence perceptions of work safety, yet few studies have explored this phenomenon from a qualitative perspective with parents of working 12 to 14 year olds. METHODS: This paper focuses on parental perceptions and understandings of work safety based on focus groups...

Jeunes du secondaire et du collégial qui cumulent études et travail
Une enquête sur les conditions d'exercice du travail et la SST Le présent projet de recherche vise trois objectifs :dresser un portrait des conditions d'exercice du travail et de SST de jeunes fréquentant les niveaux d'enseignement secondaire et collégial; identifier les facteurs associés à divers indicateurs de santé (santé générale perçue, détresse psychologique, fatigue et durée du sommeil) que l'on sait être associés à des risques pour la SST et, finalement, présenter...
Working conditions of young entrants to the labour market
Young workers across the EU, particularly young labour market entrants, are faced with major employment difficulties. High unemployment rates and poorer working conditions for young people have added new negative dimensions to the traditional problems of this group in accessing work. This report looks at the current working conditions of Europe's young labour market entrants and how these conditions have evolved in recent years, especially during the crisis. It finds a greater prevalence of non-standard forms of employment among young workers. The study was compiled on the basis of individual...
Young people and temporary employment in Europe
Since the onset of the economic and financial crisis in 2008, the number of young people in employment across the European Union has declined considerably. By mid-2013, the unemployment rate among people aged 24 and under had increased to over 23%. A large number of workers in this age group are employed on temporary rather than permanent contracts (42% compared to just 10% of workers aged 25–64). While temporary or fixed-term contracts can be a stepping stone in the transition from education into work, they can also trap young people in insecure jobs. Source : http://www.eurofound.europa...

Waiting for safety: Responses by young Canadian workers to unsafe work
INTRODUCTION : This study examines young workers' responses to unsafe work through the lens of the exit, voice, patience, and neglect typology (Leck & Saunders, 1992). METHOD : In Canada, social marketing campaigns and high school curriculum concerning workplace safety for young workers promote the benefits of "speaking out" against dangerous work. We conducted focus group interviews with teenagers in two Canadian cities to understand the types of work-related hazards experienced by this group, how they respond to hazards, and barriers to injury prevention. RESULTS : Instead of...
The effects of horizontal violence and bullying on new nurse retention
Horizontal violence and bullying are pervasive throughout nursing. New graduate nurses are at higher risk. Challenged with the task of making the transition from student to practitioner, new graduates often lack the confidence and social connectivity that may ward off interpersonal conflict. Continued interpersonal violence directed at new graduates may lead to negative physical and psychological consequences, high turnover rates, or abandonment of the profession. This article describes possible strategies to break the chain of violence. Source : Weaver KB. J Nurses Prof Dev . 2013; 29(3): 138...

Transfert entre générations : le cas des savoirs de prudence
Les démarches de transfert des savoirs d'expérience portent en général sur les savoirs métiers. Elles visent à faciliter la transmission des "tours de main", des savoir-faire critiques pour l'entreprise. Mais elles peuvent également couvrir le domaine de la santé et la sécurité au travail. On parle alors de savoirs de prudence. Extrait du dossier sur les démarches "TSE". Source : http://www.anact.fr/web/actualite/essentiel?p_thingIdToShow=13597556
