What is Work-Related Injury?

A work-related injury refers to any physical or psychological harm that occurs to an employee while they are performing their job duties or as a result of their work environment. These injuries can occur in various industries and occupations, ranging from office settings to construction sites. Work-related injuries can be caused by accidents, hazardous conditions, repetitive motion, overexertion, exposure to harmful substances, or other factors related to the job.

Examples of Work-Related Injusries

  1. Falls and slips: These can happen due to wet or uneven surfaces, poorly maintained walkways, or lack of safety measures like handrails or non-slip flooring.
    2. Strains and sprains: Overexertion, heavy lifting, awkward postures, or repetitive motions can lead to muscle strains, ligament sprains, or back injuries.
    3. Machinery accidents: Injuries can occur from operating machinery without proper training, inadequate safety guards, or malfunctioning equipment.
    4. Burns and electrical shocks: Workers in industries such as manufacturing or food service may be exposed to hot surfaces, open flames, chemicals, or faulty electrical systems.
    5. Repetitive stress injuries (RSIs): Prolonged repetitive motions, such as typing or assembly line work, can lead to conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis.
    6. Occupational illnesses: Exposure to hazardous substances or conditions over time can result in illnesses such as respiratory diseases, skin disorders, or occupational cancers.
    7. Psychological injuries: Work-related stress, harassment, bullying, or traumatic events can cause mental health issues like anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Steps To Take

When a work-related injury occurs, it is important first and foremost for the employee to report it to their employer and seek appropriate medical attention so that there is a record of the incident.  In New York State employers are required to provide workers’ compensation insurance, which covers medical expenses and provides benefits for lost wages and disability resulting from work-related injuries.
