What are some common manufacturing-related injuries?
Manufacturing jobs can cause workers to suffer a variety of injuries, but some of the most common in this line of work include:
- Heavy Machine Injuries
Many of the machines used in manufacturing operate at high rates of speed and with large amounts of force and power. If parts of workers’ clothing or body get caught in the machinery, they can suffer severe machinery injuries.
- Forklift Accidents at Work
Workers can suffer serious injuries, including crushing injuries and even impalements, when forklifts are operated without following safety procedures and protocols.
- Repetitive Stress Injuries
People who work on assembly lines are required to manipulate small objects and equipment for hours each day. Over time, the stress can cause repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis to develop.
