Workplace injuries happen all the time so it is important for organizations to be prepared for them. In this blog, we will talk about the 5 most common workplace injuries and how they can be avoided.

1. Falls, Trips, and Slips

People at the workplace mostly get injuries due to accidental slips and falls. One may suffer long-term pain if they fall due to wet floor, poor light, and other obstruction in their way. For example, if a worker falls down from a ladder, they could even injure their muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones. You can prevent such injuries to some extent by being aware of your surroundings.

2. Overexertion

People at work mostly complain about back pain and sprains. This is because of carrying heavy loads and using all those equipment that puts a strain on the body. Workers should be taught alternative ways that are less exerting for their bodies. One way you can deal with overexertion is by correcting your posture and doing exercise regularly.

3. Cuts and Punctures

When the workers do not use the tools and equipment properly, they may get cuts and punctures on their skin. Such work injuries need immediate medical attention otherwise the skin gets infected. Cuts can be prevented by providing the workers with training on how to handle the tools properly.

4. Burn Injuries

Some people work at places where they are exposed to several hot equipment and chemical substances that can cause serious harm. Employers should guide their employees to take necessary precautions when working around chemically dangerous substances or challenging situations.

5. Injuries Due to Exposure to Poisonous Chemicals

There are some industries that deal with toxic substances and ingredients. A little intoxication of these harmful substances could cause great harm to the workers. The employer should teach the workers, ways of proper usage and storage of these substances because toxic exposure could even happen by inhalation.
