Workplace injuries are unfortunately common, with approximately 2.8 million non-fatal incidents reported annually in the United States. While not all injuries are severe, some result in significant time away from work. Tragically, over 5,000 workers lose their lives due to on-the-job injuries each year. The risk is present across all professions, with certain industries posing higher risks, such as construction, manufacturing, and transportation.


Work-related injuries can happen in any employment setting, regardless of the industry.

Some leading causes include:

  • Falls from varying heights
  • Getting struck by an object
  • Electrocutions
  • Getting caught in between objects
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Failing to have the proper equipment
  • Improper training
  • Cumulative trauma

Acute injuries occur suddenly, while others, like repetitive motion injuries or respiratory illnesses, may develop over an extended period. Employers are responsible for ensuring a safe working environment and providing proper training, and appropriate equipment.
