Common Types Of Accidents

Construction accidents, industrial accidents and manufacturing accidents can cause serious injuries that can make returning to work difficult. Some of the most common types of accidents that lead to injuries include:

  • Falls from ladders and heights
  • Equipment malfunctions or defects
  • Heavy lifting and/or twisting
  • Improper use of forklifts and other equipment
  • Overuse injuries

Accidents can result in injuries that range from minor to fatal. Many of these accidents can be prevented by proper training of employees and making sure equipment is safe to use. In addition to the serious injuries that can happen due to these types of accidents, repetitive motions can lead to injuries like carpal tunnel and back injuries that are long term and can lead to disability.
