Why do canada goose coats on sale young workers have so many injuries

Health and safety at work can get ridiculed in more Canada Goose Jackets affluent countries as buy canada goose jacket cheap something nannyish and interfering but for much of the developing world it is a matter of life and death.

Unsafe workplaces have the kind of casualty cheap Canada Goose Coats official canada goose outlet rates more likely to be associated with going to canada goose canadian goose jacket outlet store uk war rather than earning a living.

And every single day more than a million people have canada goose outlet jackets a serious accident or injury at work whether Canada Goose Parka in falls on badly regulated building sites or from using dangerous machinery in factories.

The canada goose outlet uk sale figures are from the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the canada goose uk shop UN’s agency canada goose uk black friday for working conditions, which this week published a report asking why so many of these accidents seemed to involve teenage workers.

Guy Ryder, director general of the ILO, says: „152 million children, who canada goose outlet new york city should be in school, are working. And almost half of those children are engaged in hazardous work.”

„For youth who are old canada goose enough to enter the labour canada goose canada goose store factory outlet force, the available data canada goose outlet sale shows that they experience a 40% greater incidence of injury on the job than their older counterparts.”

Can’t say noBut why should young workers face canada goose outlet canada goose uk outlet nyc such a higher risk of injury compared canada goose outlet reviews with adults?

Valentine Offenloch, a programme officer for the ILO, has been in Canada Goose Coats On Sale Myanmar working with the government to improve training canada goose factory sale and to make workers more aware of safety.

Too often young people do not feel they can refuse to do something canada Canada Goose online goose outlet online uk even if they think it might be dangerous, she says.

„Young uk canada goose people feel they have to accept any job.” They might not have the experience or canada goose black friday sale confidence to realise when the risks are too high.

The consequences for young uk canada goose outlet people Canada Goose Outlet who are badly hurt can be devastating.

It’s canada goose outlet store a question of „survival”, she says. „It’s as fundamental as that.”

If young people are breadwinners and are injured, they may no cheap Canada Goose longer be able to work and support their family.

„It’s a very sobering experience,” she says, canada goose Canada Goose Online outlet black friday to see so many canada goose outlet online people who have been maimed and harmed by such work injuries.

Toxic materialsThe type of industries where accidents typically occur in Myanmar, she says, are construction and agriculture.

In agriculture a common problem is the unsafe handling of pesticides, with young people being pushed into using toxic materials.

„Farmers use Chinese or Thai pesticides and they can’t read the instructions,” canada goose jacket outlet she says. It’s often young people, used as cheap casual labour, who might canada goose clearance find themselves with the most dangerous work.

The international research from the ILO has identified a number of factors likely to push up the goose outlet canada rate of accidents among young workers.

Risk factorsYoung workers are more likely to be new to a job. And the research indicates that during the first month of employment workers are four times more likely to have an accident.

Youngsters make Canada Goose sale up a disproportionately high number of migrant workers, who might find themselves pushed into the most difficult and dangerous jobs, in a setting where they don’t speak canada goose outlet toronto factory the local language.

These young workers are more likely canada goose outlet canada to be lacking in education, skills and training and might canada goose clearance sale not be able to recognise warnings and instructions.

Whether it’s operating cheap canada goose uk machinery, climbing ladders or using chemicals, inexperienced youngsters are likely to be more vulnerable to accidents.

There are also suggestions young people might be more easily persuaded by peer pressure to go along with dangerous working practices, where older workers might be more cautious.

The youngest workers are also more physically susceptible to toxins and hazardous materials, says the study.

Fewer canada goose outlet parka child labourersThe report is calling for better protection canada goose outlet uk and safety regulations to reduce the level of accidents.

This high rate of buy canada goose jacket work related injuries is despite a more positive background in which fewer young people canada goose black friday sale are in the workforce.

In the past two decades, as access to schools has canada goose coats widened in many canada goose outlet shop parts of the world, there has been a strong global trend for the number of young canada goose outlet people in work to be reduced.

Child labour, workers below the legal minimum age, has also canada goose outlet in usa fallen sharply down by about 90 million between 2000 and 2016, according to monitoring figures from the ILO.
