Older workers in Canada nearly tripled in number from 1996 to 2018, bringing the ratio of older (55 and over) to younger (25 to 34) workers near parity (StatsCan, 2018). As of October 2021, 68.2% of people aged 55 to 64 were working (Stats Can 2021). What does this demographic trend mean for organizations that want to keep their workers healthy and safe?
This infographic illustrates why older workers can be beneficial to an organization, and what workplaces can do to ensure that they stay healthy and safe on the job, keeping in mind that a well-designed, well-organized workplace benefits everyone, regardless of age.
