We've all seen the terrible pics and videos coming from Florida surrounding the pedestrian bridge collapse. It's absolutely awful, and it's, frankly, scary that such poorly-constructed bridges are being installed.
Just recently, we found a story of a worker at a recycling plant, who was going about his normal workday, when all of a sudden he felt a sharp jolt. Investigators are now looking into what happened with the machine he was using at the time. One of theories is that the machine had not been properly maintained over time...it malfunctioned...and electrocuted the employee.
When a store assistant went to work one morning, she had every notion that workday was going to be just like any other...but it was far from it.
Suffering an injury while working is never fun...and the impact of the injury could actually lurk long after you've healed physically.
Work-related injuries can occur at any time...any place. No matter the experience level of the employee..."freak" accidents can occur leading to serious injury.
While this employee did suffer some injuries due to his fall...his life was possibly saved by a very unlikely hero.
Pain, repeated surgeries, physical therapy, loss of wages - all come along with a workplace injury.
