    Common accidents in the workplace in Sevenoaks that can cause serious injuries

    • Repetitive motion. Doing a certain task repeatedly without change or rest, can strain muscles and tendons causing back pain, wrist pain and carpal tunnel syndrome. Such tasks include typing and using the computer for long periods
    • Overexertion. Injuries from overexertion are caused when handling a weight manually. This includes pulling, lifting, pushing, carrying and throwing activities at work. This type of injury occurs regularly in the workplace as most workers don’t perceive the dangers associated with poor handling techniques
    • Highway incidents. These are vehicle accidents that involve transportation used for work or business purposes
    • Caught in or crushed by incidents. These are accidents that occur in factories where large and dangerous machinery is used. If moving parts are not guarded correctly, the use of such machines may endanger the safety of operators. The devastating results can include amputations and internal injuries.
    • Slip and fall accidents. This pertains to falls on slippery and wet surfaces. It may also involve falling from a height.
    • Collision accidents. This happens when a person is hit by a falling or fast moving object which could be a piece of machinery.
