Top 3 Workplace Injuries that Result in Days Away from Work – Infographic

May 13, 2019

Did you know in 2017 there were over 1 million work-related injury and illness cases that resulted in days away from work? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 1.1 million nonfatal work injuries and illnesses lead to a worker taking at least one day away from work to recover in 2017.

No matter how careful you are at work, how conscientious you are about following health and safety procedures, and regardless of the work environment, the possibility of injury is always present. While there are many causes of work injuries, the most common are overexertion, contact with objects and equipment, and slips and falls. These types of incidents account for more than 85% of all nonfatal injuries involving days away from work.
