Top Causes of Workplace Injuries

Accidents at work can be severe and lead to serious injuries. It is important for employers and office managers to do all that they can to prevent accidents on the job to keep their employees safe. If you have been injured at work you may be able to receive compensation. Team up with a Phoenix workers' comp attorney from Fendon Law Firm, P.C. for help with your injury case. The most common causes of workplace injuries that we have seen include:

  • Lack of proper safety equipment- employees need proper protective gear to prevent accidents and injuries
  • Slips and trips- slip and falls are a common cause of accidents due to the hardwood or tile flooring often in break rooms and office buildings. Trips are often caused by extension cords or loose carpet in the workplace
  • Repetitive motion- Often when workers do the same action all day, they can suffer injuries in the areas that are used all day. For example, carpal tunnel syndrome is a common injury for workers who type or work at a beauty salon all day
  • Fatigue- working while tired can lead to a variety of injuries because exhaustion can lead to mistakes and impaired judgment
  • Lifting objects- many jobs require lifting heavy objects which can lead to back injuries or pulled muscles
  • Workplace violence- attacks or fights at work can arise for many reasons and result in injuries
