A workplace injury can happen at any job, but some people are more likely to be injured because of their job. At The Law Offices of Peter O. Hansen, we want to share three jobs that have a higher risk of injury.
Construction- In the construction industry, there is an exceptionally high risk of injuries because of power tools and heights. Whether you are on a scaffold painting or hanging sheetrock, you should always stay alert to lower your chance of harm.
Farming- From large animals to equipment, there are many things on a farm that could cause injuries. It only takes a moment of not paying attention or looking elsewhere for something to go wrong.
Loggers- From cutting down trees to heavy-duty equipment, loggers can easily be injured while on the job. Often loggers are out of cell range, so if something does happen, they are unable to call for help.
Regardless of the career path you have chosen, we hope you stay vigilant so you can remain safe.
