Workplace injuries can cause serious distress and hardship for both employers and employees.
In 2017, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported an astounding 882,730 occupational injuries and illnesses that resulted in employees taking days off from work. Beyond missing days of work, workplace injuries can even lead to lost productivity, workers’ compensation claims, or lawsuits, all of which could diminish the profits or growth of your business.
Even if you do not consider your job or work environment to be dangerous, it is important to be aware of common workplace injuries and how you can prevent them. As a business owner, you can save considerable time, money, and effort by properly educating yourself on workplace injuries and investing in proactive solutions that prevent those injuries from ever occurring in your office.
