As we wake each morning, we face the day ready to duck and dive those hazards which lay in wait, hoping to catch us unaware. Whether we find ourselves driving, cooking, cleaning, crossing the road or walking the dog, we place ourselves in the hands of fate.

As a safety measure we rely on our inbuilt instincts and common sense to keep harm at bay. For example, when partaking in a sport we ensure that we wear appropriate clothing.  When attempting to cross a busy road, we look both ways for a clearing in the traffic. When cooking a meal we use oven gloves to transport hot dishes.

Workplace accidents

When we attend a place of work, we naturally assume that our employer has carried out an appropriate risk assessment to identify, rectify and clarify that all potential hazards have been addressed. This protects an employer from a possible claim for compensation and provides peace of mind for the worker. Duties can then be performed in the knowledge that there is little risk of harm. An employer who is lapse when it comes to safety will likely end up facing many claims for personal injury. This could result in elevated insurance premiums.

Physical injuries

The most common type of workplace injuries are physical. These can be caused through all manner of accidents but the most common are frayed electrical cords, tea and coffee spillages, lose or badly fitted carpets, open drawers and faulty machinery.

A biological hazard is more likely to do its worse when workers are exposed to infectious animals, plants or people. This could cause employees to catch nasty viruses, burns, eye problems, skin irritations, respiratory disorders, diseases or bacteria. These could have been prevented if prominent instructions had been displayed, extensive training had been provided and protective clothing was available.

Some people work with dangerous chemicals such as acids, vapours and flammable gases which can cause all manner of injuries. Workers should be alerted to areas of the workplace which are unsafe.

An ergonomic injury is caused through poor posture, inadequate lighting, repetitive movement or a large amount of bending and lifting. Workers whose job requires substantial lifting or manual work should receive appropriate training on how to cope with such duties.
