Common Union Worker Injuries
Because union workers often hold a variety of jobs, their injuries can vary from case to case. Some of the most common injuries include:
- Electrocution Injuries
Electricians and powerline workers often come into contact with live wires conducting high voltages. If workers don’t have proper safety equipment or training, they can be electrocuted and suffer burns and other serious injuries.
- Crushing Injuries
People who work on assembly lines and in manufacturing facilities are often around heavy equipment that runs at high speeds. If parts of their bodies or clothing get stuck in the machines, they can suffer crushing injuries that can be life threatening.
- Lung Injuries
Miners work deep underground around hazardous chemicals and substances. Over time, workers who breathe in these substances may develop lung injuries that can make it impossible to work.
