Hurt at Work
Some jobs are more dangerous than others. Some jobs come with an inherently high risk for injuries. Wing walkers, air show stunt walkers like you see in our image is considered a very dangerous job. Any type of accident could be fatal.
More common jobs such as construction, industrial, factory, agriculture, and working with chemicals are just a few of the vast array of jobs we all work at in this country. Each of our jobs has safety considerations that need to be understood and followed. Unfortunately, at times these safety rules and regulations may be ignored.
Lock out tag out is a safety rule and regulation that has to be followed under certain conditions. Failure to follow this government safety regulation can cause serious injury or even death. If a person has been hurt because of neglect on the job, the injured person can receive compensation for their injuries.
Employers are obligated to provide the necessary training and education so you as the worker can perform your job safely and efficiently. Failure to do so could result in a serious injury to you and/or others.
Even if your job is not considered a high risk for injuries, such as an office job, your employer still has to make sure you are safe at work.
Wet floors without the proper warning signs are a common slip and fall situation. Carpeting or floor mats that are in poor condition may cause a serious injury. Overexertion from lifting, pulling, or pushing something that may be too heavy or bulky for one person to handle is a common cause of injuries.
Repetitive motion although hard at times to prove are common among office workers.
