Although there has been a decrease in workplace injuries throughout the years with the help of the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), workplace injuries continue to be a problem nationwide. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, over 2 million workplace accidents were reported in 2017. Over 5 thousand of those workers were killed on the job, many of them in accidents caused by negligence.

What Causes Injuries on the Job?

Negligent or inexperienced employers are the most common cause of workplace accidents. Employer and co-worker negligence can put other workers in danger—especially if they fail to provide a safe work environment. Many forms of negligence can lead to injury, including:

  • Equipment Failures
    Failure to maintain machinery can result in severe accidents. The most dangerous equipment is usually industrial transportation.
  • Falling Objects & Flying Debris
    It is common for construction sites, logging sites, factories, warehouses, and shipyards to have flying objects and debris.
  • Slips & Falls
    Slippery and cluttered floors often occur at hospitals, construction sites, factories, warehouses, ships, and drilling rigs. These types of accidents can lead to life-changing accidents.
  • Failure to Comply with Safety Regulations
    Employers often fail to obey federal OSHA standards to keep employees safe—leading to many injuries and deaths.
  • Inadequate Inspections
    It is vital for employers to perform regular inspections on ladders, scaffolds, derricks, cranes and other equipment. It helps employers identify any possible risks or hazards and allows them to prevent serious accidents.
  • Insufficient Training
    Employers must provide adequate safety training to ensure that workers are aware of potential hazards in the workplace and what to do to avoid them.
