Common Workplace Injuries
Workplaces across Australia have occupational health and safety standards in place to help minimise the risk of injuries occurring.
Even with the best standards in place, accidents will still happen and employees will, unfortunately, find themselves injured.
Here in Australia, some of the most common workplace accidents and injuries include:
- Slips & falls which can result in injuries like cuts & abrasions
- Lower back pain
- Falling from heights
- Repetitive motion injuries
- Muscle sprains & strains
You should always be sure to keep up to date with the health and safety standards in place for your industry to ensure that your risk of suffering an injury is minimised.
