Here are some of the main reasons employees get injured at work:

· Overexertion. Pulling a muscle or pushing a joint too far when the worker lifts, pushes, pulls, or carries something – especially heavier items.

· Slips and Falls. Many workers trip over electrical cords, fall over equipment that wasn’t picked up or get hurt when they slip on a wet surface. Any fall can hurt the back, neck and spine.

· Falling to a lower level. Workers who fall off a ladder, from a stairwell, or off a roof are going to be in a lot of pain.

· Being struck by an object. Loose merchandise or poorly placed tools can fall directly on a person’s head, back or neck requiring medical help

· Striking an object. Some workers are pushed into slip into an object such as a barricade or equipment.

· Motor vehicle accidents. Many workers have to drive as part of their job. Any car or truck accident can cause injuries to the neck, back, and spine – as well as other parts of the body

· Equipment accidents. Many workers get hurt while they are operating heavy machinery such as a forklift. Equipment injuries can crush parts of the body causing severe pain.
