Industrial Injury FAQs

Are Accidents More Common in Certain Industries?

Yes, certain industries are categorized as high-hazard industries due to their accident and injury rates.

High-hazard industries are determined based on an average of the injury and illness rates over the course of three years. There are approximately 130,000 work sites with 40 or more workers each in the U.S. that are rated as high-hazard industries, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.

Industries considered high-hazard industries include the following:

  • Beef cattle feedlots
  • Chicken processing
  • Marine cargo handling
  • Towing and tugboat service
  • Trucking maintenance facilities
  • Warehousing
  • Packing and crating
  • Scrap and waste materials handling
  • Construction
  • Roofing
  • Fish and seafood processing
  • Lumberyards
  • Airport terminal services
  • Packaged frozen foods plants

Workers are entitled by law to safe and healthy workplaces. The U.S. Department of Labor inspects workplaces to ensure employers take proper steps to minimize workers' risk of injuries and illnesses. Unfortunately, some employers still place profits ahead of the safety of their workers.
