Abstract
Work is a significant part of life for millions of adolescents in the United States, and work-related injury has become an important contributor to the continuing epidemic of adolescent injury. This chapter reviews current data on patterns of adolescent employment and examines the epidemiology of work-related injuries among American adolescents. It discusses the contribution of work-related trauma to adolescent injury. It summarizes the legal protections that have been created in the United States to protect adolescents against exploitation and injury in the workplace, and it analyzes the erosion of those measures that has occurred since 1980. Finally, this chapter offers recommendations for the diagnosis and prevention of occupational injury among adolescents.
