NIOSH 1997 Dec; :1-6
The most important new finding of this study was that workers with disabilities, especially those with disabilities of hearing and vision, were at increased risk for occupational injuries. This finding suggests that employers and employees need to pay more attention to designing effective accomodations for workers with disabilities in order to prevent these occupational injuries.
