Common Workplace Injuries
Depending on the nature of the job in question, a wide variety of workplace injuries can occur. Workplace injuries are usually divided into two main categories:
- Those that are caused by a specific accident
- Occupational conditions that occur after continuous exposure to toxic substances, or long-term strain and stress on your body.
Some examples of common workplace injuries include:
- Back injuries
- Lung damage
- Repetitive motion injuries (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis)
- Stress fractures
- Neck injuries
- Hand injuries
- Brain injuries
