As an employee, you know that you could be injured on the job at any time. This is more so the case in some industries than others, but it may be something that is always in the back of your mind.
As a worker, you should do whatever you can to avoid trouble, such as a fall. At the same time, employers need to do the same.
There is no denying the fact that falls are among the most common workplace injuries. In some cases, this can even lead to death.
There are many things employers can do to reduce falls, including things such as:
— Making note of any floor imperfections, such as holes, that a person could accidentally step into.
— Install guard rails where necessary.
— Require that employees use a safety harness when a fall is possible.
Even when employees know that they are working in a dangerous situation, such as a construction site, it doesn’t mean they will always be able to watch every step they take. As a result, workplace accidents, such as falls, can and will continue to happen.
If you have been injured in a workplace fall, don’t wait to receive medical attention. Along with this, be sure that your employer is notified of what happened. This helps avoid a situation in which they claim that your injury did not happen on the job.
