4 Common Workplace Injuries

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on September 17, 2013

4 Common Workplace InjuriesYour place of work should be where you feel safe. But in 2010, over 4,500 American workers were killed on the job while millions more suffered serious non-fatal workplace injuries. To help you stay safe while at work, here are four common workplace injuries and how you can avoid them:

  • Overexertion workplace injuries: Overexertion workplace injuries are the most common injury that occurs at work. These workplace injuries can result from constantly pulling, lifting, pushing, holding, carrying and throwing objects at work. It’s vital to have proper training and equipment at your workplace to protect you from overexertion workplace injuries.
  • Slip and fall workplace injuries: Slips and falls are the second most common cause of workplace injuries. It’s important for employers to always post caution signs if there is a slippery area on the floor, or to pick up things that could cause a slip and fall injury. Employers should also have safety guidelines posted to keep staff alert on how to maintain the workplace area to prevent slip and fall injuries.
  • Falling from heights workplace injuries: These types of workplace injuries are common at construction sites. They usually occur when someone falls off a roof, ladder or stairway. These types of slip and fall accidents can be prevented by proper training and maintenance of equipment.
  • Violent acts at work: Often people will get frustrated while at work, but sometimes they take it out on others around them. Office politics or arguments can lead to physical attacks and serious workplace injuries. It’s important to make sure every employee goes through workplace violence employee training to help employees know how to prevent these workplace injuries.

If you or your loved one were a victim of a workplace injury or fatality due to the negligence of someone else, you deserve justice and compensation. Contact the Texas workplace injury attorneys today at the Law Offices of W.T. Johnson and set-up your free, no-obligation consultation.
