Top 5 Jobs With The Most On The Job Injuries

Law Offices Of Kropach & Kropach

From an early age, we prepare our youth for the working world. As soon as they are able to talk we start to ask questions like what do you want to be when you grow up? Do we review these answers with praise or more questions like what makes you want to do that? Parents and adults are always concerned about how their children will succeed in the world. Most are worried about their children finding a job they love and finding a job that pays. Most don’t consider the safety related to the job. Our Los Angeles workplace injury attorneys at Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach think about workers safety all the time. It is our job to represent clients who have been injured on the job. We have been successful at representing clients for over 40 years.

Anytime your job is outside the normal 9-5 office job, the risk is inherent. For example, if you choose to become a firefighter then the risk is inherent in the job. You know you will be dealing with buildings on fire. You know that you will be dealing with air pollutants because it is part of your daily routine. People who work in offices deal with different kinds of risks. People who work in sedentary jobs deal with different kinds of injuries that build over time like hear disease or repetitive stress injuries. Then there are jobs that are riskier than we believe.

If you work in any of these industries then you may want to consider your options for workers compensation. Just because most get injured at your job doesn’t mean that you will, but the statistics are not in your favor. Being prepared for an accident is the most you can do to protect yourself and your family members.

  1. Air transportation: A lot of manual labor goes into getting planes and helicopters off the ground. The rate of injury at this job is 6 out of 100 workers.
  2. Wood product manufacturing: Another labor-intensive job that results in the same rate as air transportation. This job requires sawing, planning, laminating, shaping, or assembling wood products.
  3. Couriers and messengers: Typically not a very high profile job, around 30,000 injuries were filed a year.
  4. Nursing and hospital residential staff: Working in the medical field is hard and monotonous. Daily routines require the same behavior over and over again. This can increase repetitive stress-related injuries. In the private sector, the rate is 6 out of 100 workers. In the public sector, it is close to 12 out of 100.
  5. Animal production: This industry has the highest overall rate of worker injuries. From feeding to sales production, animal production is the lead in injuries for their workers.
