Workplace injuries are extremely common and can be devastating for the injured worker. There are many on the job hazards that workers face every day.
Slips, Trips, and Falls are among the most common causes of workplace injuries. Wet or slippery floors, uneven surfaces, cluttered walkways, and inadequate lighting can contribute to these accidents.
Lifting, pushing, pulling, and carrying heavy objects can lead to strains, sprains, and musculoskeletal injuries. Poor lifting techniques and repetitive motions can exacerbate these issues.
Workers may be injured by objects falling from shelves, equipment, or other elevated surfaces. This underscores the importance of proper storage and securing of items.
Workers operating machinery or equipment are at risk of injuries from entanglement, crush injuries, and being caught in moving parts. Inadequate training, lack of machine guards, and equipment malfunction can contribute to these accidents.
Workers who operate vehicles as part of their job, such as drivers and forklift operators, are susceptible to accidents both on the road and within the workplace premises.
Continuous, repetitive motions can lead to RSIs such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and bursitis. Workers in assembly lines, data entry, and other repetitive tasks are at risk.
