Common Types of Work Accidents
Every industry has inherent safety risks, whether you’re working in a factory or a modern office environment. Most life-threatening and fatal work accidents occur on construction sites. Excavation crew members, welders, electricians, carpenters, operators of heavy machinery, and laborers are exposed to many hazards.
Typical construction accidents causing serious injury or death involve falls from heights, machine entanglement and rollovers, falling objects, electrocution, scaffold or crane failures, and structural collapses.
Various types of work accidents can happen in seemingly safe settings. Workers may suffer repetitive motion injuries or fall on slippery or cluttered flooring.
