Factory workers must deal with numerous safety hazards in their workplace
that can potentially cause serious injury. Whether you work in the food
packaging industry or car manufacturing industry, factory workers are
workers’ compensation benefits if they suffer a work-related injury. Even injuries that develop over
time can be covered by workers’ compensation. Below, we list some
of the common
factory worker injuries that were reported by
The Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Repetitive Motion Injuries: When a worker does the same movement over and over, day after day, they
can develop soft tissue injuries that cause chronic pain and other health problems.
Transportation Injuries: Accidents involving forklifts and other small vehicles used to transport
items around the factory cause a substantial number of injuries each year.
Overexertion: Factory work requires some employees to stand and work for an extensive
amount of time, which can sometimes result in musculoskeletal disorders
caused by overexertion.
Fires & Explosions: Manufacturing plants often have flammable and highly combustible materials
that can make a workplace fire even deadlier.
Struck by Object Injuries: Factory workers must use dangerous equipment that can result in crushing
injuries and amputated limbs.
