Work-Related Injuries

The workplace is generally a safe environment, but there are instances when you may be injured despite using all safety guidelines. There are many types of work-related injuries, but naming the many types of work-related injuries means naming the many types of work.

It is often easier to categorize injuries into their known causes.

Driving based injuries

  • Incidents involving Fork Lift accidents
  • Incidents involving Pallet Truck accidents
  • Injuries due to poor maintenance of vehicles
  • Injuries due to long hours of labor

Factory based injuries

Factory based injuries include those which take place in workplaces where heavy machineries are used. The common types of factory based injuries are as follows:

  • Injuries due to repetitive strains
  • Injuries due to lifting, carrying, or handling objects that are too heavy
  • Injuries with general tissue trauma due to large cuts and wounds
  • Injuries due to falling from height

Equipment based injuries

The construction industry has the highest rate of workplace fatality compared to work from other sectors. This could also overlap with those kinds in the factory based injuries.

  • Loss of limbs after a major heavy machinery accident
  • Injuries due to defective machinery or poor maintenance of machinery
  • Injuries or fall from height due to dangerous equipment

Office based injuries

  • Trips or falls in the office due to lack of warning or poor maintenance of the workplaces
  • Injuries due to defective seating
  • Injuries due to poor maintenance of electrical equipment
  • Injuries due to repetitive stress to certain joints or body parts
