Top 10 Accidents In The Workplace

  1. 1. TOP 10 ACCIDENTS IN THE WORKPLACE
  2. 2. Injuries in the workplace are very common and the majority of those are random incidents that could have been avoided if extra care was taken. Not only is it the employers responsibility to ensure you’re safe but each employee needs to be responsible for themselves.
  3. 3. These injuries can happen to anyone so it’s crucial that you look after yourself and try to look out for people around you.
  4. 4. ACCIDENTAL SLIPS &TRIPS
  5. 5. ACCIDENTAL SLIPS &TRIPS It’s quite common to find slippery surfaces in the work place whether it is a liquid spill on the factory floor that hasn’t been cleared up or toilets that have not been kept clear by custodial staff.Whilst walking around the workplace just be more aware of the surfaces you are walking on to avoid any accidents.
  6. 6. BACK/NECK PAINS
  7. 7. BACK/NECK PAINS If you work in an industry that requires you to lift heavy objects then you’ll find that muscle strains to your back and neck are very common.The company you work for should provide basic safety training on lifting techniques and supply specialist equipment that reduces these types of injuries.
  8. 8. LOSS OF HEARING
  9. 9. LOSS OF HEARING In some industries you might be exposed to a constant loud noise which can result in reduced hearing. Basic safety measures such as ear protection and moving the noise-producing machines behind special barriers can eliminate this type of injury.
  10. 10. ACCIDENTAL FALLS
  11. 11. ACCIDENTAL FALLS Falls from ladders are the most common types of injury in the workplace. Other falls would be from things such as scaffolding, platforms and stairwells. Employers should supply harnesses where appropriate and keep obstructions to a minimum. If you fall and land on your head then you might be entitled to claiming head injury compensation.
  12. 12. BURNS
  13. 13. BURNS If you work somewhere where you work with harsh chemicals, welding equipment or anything that heats up then you might have experienced burns. Serious burns should be seen by a medical professional.
  14. 14. FALLING OBJECT INJURIES
  15. 15. FALLING OBJECT INJURIES One way you can avoid serious head injures from falling objects is if you always wear a hard safety hat.Things that fall could be from something dropping off a shelf or falling rocks if you’re working outside.You can claim for head injury compensation if you suffer significant head trauma.
  16. 16. CUTS
  17. 17. CUTS There’s a wide range of machinery that could cause you to cut yourself and the main cause of injuries from this is a lack of concentration. Before using equipment you should have ben provided with training to ensure minimal chance of injuries.
  18. 18. VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
  19. 19. VEHICLE ACCIDENTS Some employees drive around all day for business purposes but as road accidents are amongst the most common, it’s important they do the Safe-Driver training to reduce the chance of accidents on the road.
  20. 20. INHALATIONS
  21. 21. INHALATIONS In factory or lab environments where employees are working with harsh chemicals, fumes or gasses, they could suffer from poisonings or bad reactions.These types of areas should be well equipped with emergency showers, safety goggles and breathing masks.
  22. 22. REPETITIVE MOTION INJURIES
  23. 23. REPETITIVE MOTION INJURIES Repetitive motions such as typing at a computer can strain muscles and tendons causing back pain. Staring at a computer screen all day can also cause long term vision problems.
  24. 24. If you’ve been involved in an accident at work and are considering making a compensation claim then I would recommend Mulderrigs, they have been dealing with work accident claims for over 20 years and have helped to recover millions of pounds for clients. http://www.mulderrigs.co.uk/
