What to know if you've been injured at work
These types of accidents are usually musculoskeletal, and are often associated with repetitive tasks performed for an extended period of time, such as data entry or filing. But other types of injuries can also be serious, including cuts and lacerations, slips, trips and falls, and burns. These kinds of injuries are typically sustained while perform tasks that involve lifting, pushing, pulling or otherwise interacting with an object.
Work-related injuries can also be psychological. These kinds of injuries typically arise from organisational or personal factors, with major factors including poor communication, interpersonal relationships, bullying and fatigue. Psychological work-relate injuries can be just as detrimental to your health as physical injuries; failing to address a psychological injury can have serious consequences on your mental and physical health.
