On the average construction site, there is a certain group that is particularly vulnerable to injury, both minor and serious. That group is your inexperienced workers. Firstly, it is necessary to note that this is not simply a matter of age. While younger workers do have an injury rate than older workmates, studies have found that it is inexperience that is the key here. In fact, employees in their first month on a job have more than 3 times the risk for injury compared to someone who has been at their job for more than a year.
