- Equipment failure;
- Poor safety training;
- Exposure to hazards such as explosive materials, gases and toxic materials;
- Lifting of loads that are too heavy; and
- Slipping or tripping on an unmarked hazard or obstruction.
Then there are cases of industrial disease. Workers with prolonged exposure to loud noises may begin to suffer from deafness, or those in the construction industry may be diagnosed with asbestosis.
