Abstract
Overview: After food service establishments, grocery stores are the second most common industry in which Massachusetts teens are employed. Grocery stores also rank second only to restaurants in the number of teen workers injured on the job. From 2005 through 2010, grocery store injuries accounted for 200 (13%) of the 1,666 work-related injuries (for which industry was known) identified by the TAW Project. 73% of these injuries were identified through workers' compensation lost wage claims, and 27% through hospital emergency department reports. This fact sheet provides a closer look at these non-fatal injuries to teens working in grocery stores.
