Work Related Injury

Any injury, disease or other affliction contracted from working or the working environment is a work related injury.  Common work related injuries include, falls, cuts, eye damage, crushing injuries, lung contamination, broken bones and skin injuries.  Injuries are often caused by the malfunction or misuse of machinery, vehicles and tools; and inadequate safety clothing or training when using hazardous chemicals or materials.

A work area may contain any number of hazards for the worker.  Employees can be in the proximity of, or working with electricity, high pressure or hot gases or liquids, poisonous gases or liquids, other toxic materials, dangerous machinery, weakened structures, flammable gases or liquids, dangerous tools or in dangerous environments such as hazardous spills areas.

Some serious conditions that can result from work place environments include:

  • Mesothelioma or asbestosis caused from working with or near asbestos
     
  • Silicosis caused from working in a dusty environment
     
  • Caisson disease caused by working in a high air pressure environment
     
  • Air embolism caused by compressed air entering skin cuts

Under the federal OSHA law, employers must take certain precautions to protect and prevent workers from becoming injured on the job.  However, no amount of prevention or protection can eliminate all work related injuries.
