Common Causes of Workplace Injuries
A good way to prevent workplace injuries is to prepare for the top causes of injuries. For example, facilities should invest in high-quality personal protective equipment (PPE), which will reduce the risk of being injured from contact with harmful substances or hazardous equipment. Safety markers and signs should also be utilized as physical indicators to exercise caution and stay safe within the facility. All employees should also be properly trained so the whole team is equipped with the best practices in working around the site and handling equipment and materials as safely as possible. Managers can also add training in ergonomics to address injuries from bodily reactions caused by overexertion and repetitive motions that can cause stress injuries. First, it’s important for us to understand the most common injuries to expect and how they are caused.
