An assumption some workers might make is that getting hurt in the workplace is something that just happens to other people. They might think that, as long as they are conscientious about safety, they don’t have to worry at all about work injuries. Workers acting safely in the workplace is certainly important. However, work injuries can come about in numerous ways and can come out of the actions of a wide range of different parties. So, they can sometimes strike even the safest of workers.
Also, workplace injuries are not affecting just a handful of employees in the nation. Sadly, such events are rather common here in America. Nationwide, millions of workers a year are hurt on the job. According to some estimates, a U.S. workplace injury occurs, on average, once every seven seconds.
