Understanding Workplace Injuries

Workplace injuries can range from minor incidents to severe accidents. Some of the more common injuries include:

  • Falls from heights
  • Chemical burns or poisoning
  • Crushing or blunt force trauma caused by heavy equipment
  • Electrocution and burns
  • Repetitive stress injuries, such as industrial asthma or carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Injuries from operating machinery or moving parts

Immediate Steps to Take After a Work Injury

  1. Report the Incident: Always inform your supervisor about the injury as soon as it happens. This is crucial for documentation and necessary for any future workers’ compensation claims.
  2. Assess Your Condition: Evaluate the severity of your injury. For life-threatening conditions or severe trauma, seek emergency medical care immediately or dial 911.
  3. Seek Medical Care: For non-emergency injuries, visit Cermak Immediate Care. We offer comprehensive diagnostics and treatment for a wide range of work-related injuries.
