Have you been hurt or injured?
Any type of injury can be worrying but if an injury stops you from going to work or carrying out your normal daily activities, it can result in a significant amount of stress. In addition to stopping you getting out and about. If an injury stops you going to work, it can have a serious financial impact.
What if I can’t work?
Some injuries may mean that you’re unable to work for some time but in some instances people who have been seriously hurt may be unable to return to work at all or may need to change jobs in order to do something less taxing.
Although an injury can stop you working, working can also be the cause of an injury in some cases. Whilst anyone can suffer an injury at work, some job roles and environments may cause more injuries than others.
If, for example, your job involves manual work or you work with heavy machinery, you may suffer an industrial injury of some kind. On the other hand, office work can also leave staff with injuries such as carpal tunnel or repetitive strain injury if they spend hours working at a computer.
