Common Work Injuries
Work injuries vary depending on the nature of the job; however, common work injuries include:
- Overexertion. This is considered the number-one workplace injury. Overexertion is due to activities involving pulling, lifting, carrying, holding or throwing.
- Falling. Injuries often occur because of wet office floors that cause people to slip. Falls from elevated areas like roofs or ladders are also considered common work injuries.
- Car accidents. If you drive a truck for work or use transportation specifically for business purposes, car accidents tend to be pretty common.
- Falling objects. Injuries commonly occur when items fall from shelves or are dropped on someone.
- Improper use of dangerous equipment. This type of workplace injury is most common in factory-like settings that have dangerous machinery.
