What Kind of Injuries can Office Workers Face?

Workers all across Canada are exposed to numerous hazards on a daily basis that compromises their workplace safety. This is especially true for trades workers in industries such as fossil fuel, construction, general labor, automobile etc. Across the country, trips or slips are the most common type of accidents that occur across all industries. However, they do not account for most incidences of serious injury. Young workers are more susceptible to workplace injuries than their older, more experienced counterparts. Stress and a lack of sleep are also major contributing factors that compromise worker safety.

What should be done?

Employers should have greater safety regulations in place for high-risk workers. Young workers need to be provided proper training before being allowed to work, especially in trades industries. Provincial and the federal government need to have more mandatory training and safety courses for industries that require them. All employers should follow the safety standards set forth by Occupational Health and Safety Act. Basic compulsory safety and health awareness programs should be conducted on a regular basis.
