Workplace Overexertion Injuries

Awareness is the first step toward preventing workplace overexertion injuries. Knowing the most common workplace injuries and how to prevent them can reduce injuries in the workplace.

What Are Workplace Overexertion Injuries?
One of the most common workplace injuries involves overexertion, which can lead to musculoskeletal injuries affecting muscles, bones, joints, ligaments, tendons or other connective tissue in the body. Common musculoskeletal injuries include back and shoulder injuries from lifting heavy objects or repetitive movements, which can lead to periods of disability or even a sustained inability to perform the duties of a job.

Preventing Workplace Injuries

To prevent overexertion injuries, employees should be provided the proper equipment and training to perform their work duties. They should be aware of potential hazards in the workplace and follow safety practices to prevent injuries. However, many employers fail to prioritize worker safety and, unfortunately, sometimes workers are hurt. Even under the best of circumstances, workplace accidents can and do happen, resulting in costly medical bills and missed work.
