Older workers are more accident-prone – False

Do workers over the age of 60 pose a higher risk to health and safety than their younger counterparts? A recent study by researchers at Brunel University in London proves that this is not the case and provides evidence against age discrimination and towards the benefits of hiring those beyond their sixties.

The study concluded that employing people over the age of 60 is a positive move for employers; they are less accident prone, can cope with work pressures and bring a wealth of experience and knowledge. The study also found both health and social benefits of staying active at work for the many people who choose to continue to work later in life.
