This paper is focused in the line of research that analyses how the age of the worker influences in the practice of his/her work. The aim is to study the impact of the worker’s age in the incidence and severity of labour accidents, as well as in the duration of the sick leaves caused by them. Using data from the Encuesta de Accidentes de Trabajo in 2008, we estimate a model that analyses the impact of the age in the probability of severity of accidents, once the accident has happened. Further, we estimate a duration model in order to study the influence of the age in the extension of the sick leaves caused by labour injuries. The preliminary conclusions show that, when the jobÌs characteristics and the type of accidents are controlled for, the probability that the accident is severe or fatal, as well as the duration of the sick leave, increases with the worker’s age.
