One of the most common workplace accidents that affect employees while on the job, regardless of the industry, are overextension accidents.
Not knowing how to properly push, pull, carry, throw, or lift items has a tendency to cause injuries to the back and surrounding areas. In fact, this is one of the most expensive workplace injuries because the rehabilitation required to recover from such an injury is so intense.
In the end, there are many hazards that present themselves to employees on a daily basis.
However, most of them are preventable with a little bit of common safety knowledge, as well as intense, educational safety training, such as OSHA safety training.
If your workplace does this, everyone on the job will know how to prevent accidents from happening and remain safe from all workplace injuries.
