Abstract

Group apprentice and traineeships expanded throughout the 1990s. This paper looks at a specific problem with the expansion of group training which is that it may be associated with an increased risk of workplace injury relative to direct hire apprentices and trainees. The paper explores workplace injuries amongst Victorian apprentices/trainees through an examination of their workers' compensation claims. Some tentative explanations for differing injury and claim rates are then proposed.
