Leading Injury Types Manufacturing Workers
The assembly line can be a dangerous place for workers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has created a list of the leading injury types which affect workers who work in manufacturing, including:
- Overexertion. This type of injury is common in the manufacturing industry because the very nature of the work requires employees to have extensive stamina and to complete numerous physical tasks throughout the day
- Repetitive Motion Injuries. Doing the same thing over and over can cause your soft tissues to wear down. When these tissues become damaged, you may experience pain as well as a number of other health problems
- Body Movement Injuries. These include injuries which are the result of bending, twisting, reaching and crawling
- Exposure to Harmful Substances. Coming in contact with or inhaling chemicals can cause immediate illness or injury, and it can result in long-term health consequences
- Contact with Objects and Equipment. You may become severely injured because of a crushing injury, entrapment, or a pinching injury
- Transportation Incidents. These types of incidents often involve forklifts but they may include other types of vehicles as well
- Fires and Explosions. Fires pose a significant threat in manufacturing plants as there are often flammable and highly combustible materials nearby
