Riskiest Jobs that May Result In Workplace Injuries

Published on October 1st, 2019

Office jobs or other 9-5 desk jobs don’t require a ton of physical strain in order to be successful. However, there are other industries that involve much more rigorous labor, and may sometimes result in injuries that require attention from our personal injury lawyer in Zion, Il. While common “risky” jobs include police officers, firefighters or military members, there are other occupations that may result in injuries. 

Examples of Strenuous, Dangerous Jobs

While the above occupations are undoubtedly dangerous, there are other occupations that require ongoing physical labor. The National Safety Council reported that there were over 800,000 nonfatal workplace-related injuries in 2017 alone. On the list of some of the more strenuous jobs includes the transportation and material moving material field and the service industry.

Common Workplace Injuries

Some of the most common workplace injuries that we see include sprains, strains, overuse, tears, soreness and pain. Seemingly minor injuries can cause workers to miss work altogether, as they can’t perform to the best of their ability and put themselves at risk of developing a more serious injury. In this case, it’s important that the employee takes the necessary amount of time off to remedy the injury and recover to 100 percent.
