Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the release of a new study from Liberty Mutual Research Institute’s Center for Injury Epidemiology that found that people who work multiple jobs have a greater likelihood of injury than those holding a single job.
According to the study, multiple job holders were found to have a 27% higher rate of work-related injury, and a 34% higher rate of non-work-related injury compared to single job holders. A subsequent study by Liberty Mutual’s Research Institute also found significant differences in work schedule and time use patterns for multiple job holders, which suggested that they had a higher risk of fatigue, increasing the likelihood of injury.
