Injuries at the workplace can happen to anyone regardless of your work environment. Injuries can result from an accident or from repetitive tasks that put a strain on your body. Here are common injuries that take place in all work environments:
- Repetitive motion injuries: this includes everything from chopping food all day to typing on a computer, which can lead to issues such as tendonitis or carpal tunnel syndrome
- Falling object injuries: Many people experience head, neck and back injuries due to falling objects
- Falling: From falling down the stairs to tripping on a wet floor, taking a bad tumble can often result in serious injuries
- Overexertion: If you have to lift, carry or hold heavy objects, this can lead to chronic pain and muscle strain
Symptoms from these injuries can sometimes be minor, but without proper care will grow and manifest into bigger problems for your overall wellbeing.
Untreated pains from work-related injuries can turn into chronic issues including:
- Back pain
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Neck pain
- Nerve damage
Don’t ignore your pains and aches from your daily work routines!
