WORKPLACE ACCIDENT AND CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT
According to OSHA, over 374 million accidents were reported in the U.S. workplace last year. While most of the injuries sustained were considered non-fatal, the risk of being injured on the job remains exceptionally high.
In the United States, industry workers were ranked the highest for job-related accidents. Most service workers are required to perform strenuous and repetitive tasks, make deliveries, or operate heavy equipment or machinery.
When an accident occurs in the workplace, an employer has to comply with state-regulated protocols such as providing immediate medical attention, gathering witness statements, documenting the scene of the accident, and reporting the cause of the injury.
Common Injuries Sustained in the Workplace
Whether your job requires you to drive a truck, operate a forklift, restock inventory, or perform clerical duties, injuries can occur to anyone at any given time.
Common workplace injuries occur after falling on a slick or wet floor or from heights, being struck by a moving or falling object, or overexertion from moving heavy objects.
