    Common Injuries in Factory Accidents claims

    Here is a list of the most common injuries that occur in industrial and manufacturing units:-

    Burns – factory workers are always at risk of burn injuries as heating is used in almost every industry. It can also be a chemical burn caused by exposure to hazardous chemicals. In most cases, burn injuries are mild but can be life-threatening in some cases.

    Breaks and fractures: Many industrial accidents can result in broken bones and fractures. Machines can hit a worker badly, or an object was falling from a height.

    Spinal and back injuries: This kind of injury occurs by moving or lifting heavy objects leading to overexertion and putting pressure on the spinal cord.

    Respiratory problems: These may be common in industries with dusty, highly toxic chemicals, working near smoke continuously. These occur over time and may start appearing based on the extent of exposure a person had in the toxic environment.

    Damaged hearing: Most factories are noisy, with machines creating a high level of noise. As per HSE Noise guidelines, all factories must keep the decibel level of the factory floor below safe levels. Spikes in the decibel level can cause permanent damage to a person’s hearing ability. Hearing impairment doesn’t heal naturally, is usually permanent and irreparable.
