Avoiding Common Workplace Injuries in Colorado
Is your job dangerous?
Are you at high risk for suffering a workplace injury?
Do you do a good job following safety instructions at work?
Accidents happen, so it’s important to make sure you’re aware of how to avoid common workplace injuries. To help avoid injury, follow this advice:
- Be aware of your surroundings and take precautions to avoid dangerous situations. You should also make sure you’re physically fit enough to do the job, and know how to properly use any safety equipment that’s required.
- Always follow the safety instructions provided by your employer, and don’t hesitate to talk to your supervisor or employer about any questions or concerns.
- Take regular breaks and stretch your muscles. You can also use ergonomic equipment, such as wrist braces and foam pads, to help reduce strain.
The most common types of workplace injuries include back strain and injury, ankle sprain, repetitive stress injuries, and exposure to hazardous materials.
If you’re suffering from delayed pain after a work accident, you should tell your doctor. It’s extremely important to note these symptoms in your first medical record for potential workers’ compensation benefits, especially if you have a fight on your hands with the insurance company. In addition, it’s also extremely important to continue to describe your pain and discomfort in connection to the work injury at every medical visit thereafter.
