Atlanta, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/09/2019 -- June is National Safety Month, designed to highlight areas surrounding some of the leading causes of fatalities and injuries within the workplace. As Atlanta's leading workers' compensation lawyers, the team at The Law Offices of Darwin F. Johnson has advised on the most common workplace injuries sustained each year.
Their team advises that slips, trips, and falls account for over 30% of all personal injuries sustained in the workplace, making them a leading cause of workers' compensation claims. Damages incurred from these accidents include broken bones, head and back injuries, lacerations and cuts, sprains and pulled muscles. The leading causes of these accidents are wet or oily surfaces, loose rugs or mats, and uneven surfaces.
Another leading cause of workplace injury is unguarded or unsafe machinery. Body parts can get caught in or struck by exposed moving parts or objects expelled by machines that aren't fitted with protective guards. This can lead to crushed limbs, blindness, severed fingers, and even death.
Transportation and vehicle-related accidents are the third most prevalent cause of injury within working environments. These accidents include being hit or run over by a vehicle, falling from a vehicle, being struck by objects that fall from a vehicle, and being crushed by a vehicle that has overturned. These type of accidents cause the most fatalities in the agriculture industry but can be just as catastrophic in manufacturing environments.
