In the National Safety Council’s new report detailing workplace injuries, the group names the most common injuries suffered by workers. The NSC works to save lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, in homes and communities, and on the roads.
Most Common Injuries – Three main types of injuries suffered by workers keep them away from work the most. First is sprains, strains or tears, which are common in physical labor such as sanitation workers and construction. Second is soreness or pain, which can occur in most types of jobs, including office work in which the employee has repetitive tasks like typing. Third is cuts, lacerations or punctures, which can occur in more physical jobs like farming, manufacturing and factory work, as well as building and construction jobs.
