Have you suffered an injury at work?
Although injuries can occur at any place or at any time, many of us do seem to experience them in the workplace. Even though there are numerous health and safety laws and guidelines, unfortunately employees can still suffer serious injuries.
Sometimes, injuries which you’re most at risk of may be associated with the loss of the job you do. If, for example, you’re a builder and you regularly use heavy machinery, you could be at risk of one of the machines malfunctioning and causing you an injury. Similarly, if you’re a sports coach, you could be at risk of injury because of the increased physical activity you do due to your job.
Although people often assume that working in an office is relatively safe, office workers seem to suffer injuries with alarming frequency. Repetitive strain injuries appear to be common in office workers, perhaps because many office workers use computers for hours every day. Similarly, many office workers suffer eye problems, headaches and back problems because of the type of work they do.
