Looking back at your younger self, did you ever do anything that you would now consider dangerous or foolish? The data are clear. Adolescents and young adults (ages 15 to 24) are more likely to engage in risky behaviors than are adults and workplace incidents are more frequent among this age group. This presentation examines the recent Human Factors research that helps us understand why younger workers are less risk averse than their older counterparts and then examines an approach that capitalizes on the strengths of both older and younger workers that can help minimize risk taking in the workplace.
