Every five days, one teen is killed on the job.  According to the National Institute of Occupational Safety Health, there are about 70 work related fatalities per year among this youth population.  More than 200,000 young workers are injured on the job, and 70,000 of them require emergency room or hospital treatment. Further, young workers continue to have the highest rates of work-related deaths, injuries and illnesses easily double and in some cases triple that for any other age category.
