Regardless of your profession or industry, you must understand what it takes to create a safe working environment. While this sounds simple enough, both employees and employers make mistakes every now and again.
A broken foot is a common injury that can put you on the shelf for an extended period of time. You can suffer this injury when you least expect it, such as when walking on a construction site or getting up out of your seat at work.
Even if you work in a so-called "safe" industry, you should never rule out the possibility of suffering a laceration on the job.
On March 21, 2016, at an Alliance, Nebraska, construction site, a veteran plumber had been working in trenches that were eight feet deep at a newly constructed home on Toluca Avenue. The 61-year-old was apparently on all fours installing sewer pipes within one of those when his co-worker dumped what's been estimated to be 3,000 pounds of dirt on top of him.
A hip dislocation is every bit as painful as it sounds. While you never want to suffer this type of injury, it could happen as the result of a variety of accidents.
In a perfect world, you would never suffer from any type of injury. Unfortunately, there is no way of knowing what the future will bring. When you least expect it, you could find your life changing as the result of a serious injury.
A kneecap dislocation is every bit as painful as it sounds. While you have no intention of ever dealing with a dislocation, you never know what could happen in the future if you take a wrong step or are part of an accident.
Even if you don't work in a physically demanding field, such as construction, you could still suffer an on-the-job injury. For example, a slip-and-fall on a slippery stairwell may result in a variety of injuries.
Depending on your profession, you may have some concerns about suffering a blow to the head. For instance, if you work in the construction industry, you know that this could happen at any time.
Regardless of your industry and profession, you should always assume you could suffer an on-the-job injury at some point. With this assumption, you'll be prepared for anything that comes your way (even the worst of injuries).
