Work Related Accidents

There are many different kinds of injuries that can occur in the workplace, which can be costly to both the employer and the employee.  The most common incidents are:

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Injuries related to machinery
  • Vehicle related accidents
  • Fires or explosions
  • Overexertion and repetitive stress

The best way to prevent injuries in the workplace is to ensure the area is safe prior to engaging in any activity, and to let the manager or supervisor know of any unsafe conditions that may be present. Many facilities are bound by state, federal or environmental regulations that require the employer to abide by strict safety protocols when engaging in risky activity.  Failure to abide by these safety regulations can result in unsafe, dangerous and potentially fatal incidents. Many times, taking a common- sense approach to a potentially unsafe condition can prevent injury.  However, some hazards are unforeseen and may result in devastating injury.
