In fact, a wide range of industrial accidents occur to victims every year due to a myriad of causes. The consistent factor between the many types of industrial accidents that occur involves employers owing their employees an obligation to provide them with a safe working environment. However, that isn’t always the case, which can result in serious injuries, and sometimes even death.

What Causes Industrial Accidents?

There are many potential causes of an industrial accident, including:

Equipment Failure or Malfunction

Defects in equipment can arise due to a number of factors, including design flaw, manufacturer flaw, or wear and tear from use. Although inspections are performed regularly, including before and after projects are completed or during work hours by workers or supervisors on site, accidents still can result from faulty or malfunctioning components.

Human Error

Human error can happen due to workers who perform tasks such as operating heavy machinery or vehicles that transport materials from one place to another on site. Therefore, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) pays close attention to the training and communication among workers to determine if human error may be the cause of an accident.

Weather conditions

Weather conditions such as fog or wind can lead to dangerous situations that may result in an industrial accident. This is especially true when working with heavy machinery such as cranes and forklifts.

Dangerous cargo

Dangerous cargo can lead to injuries if not handled properly by workers at a facility. For example, fuel spills have led to fires that have caused serious injuries among workers at facilities where they handle hazardous materials on a regular basis.

Slips and falls

Falls are one of the most common types of accidents that occur on construction sites because there is often heavy equipment being moved around on uneven surfaces which creates slippery conditions that could lead to falls.

Failure to properly secure equipment

One of the most common causes of accidents in factories and other industrial settings is when equipment isn’t properly secured. This can result in serious injuries, including but not limited to amputation and death.

Improperly trained employees

Employers must train their employees on how to use their equipment safely and effectively. If an employee isn’t properly trained, they may not know how to use the equipment correctly, which can result in serious injuries or death.

Lack of safety precautions

Employers must take all necessary precautions to ensure that their employees are safe while working at their facilities. If they fail to do so, they could be held liable for any injuries that occur as a result of this negligence.

Taking shortcuts

It is no secret that everyone wants to get things done faster. However, this isn’t always the best solution, as taking shortcuts can result in extreme risks. When someone takes a shortcut in the workplace that results in you being injured, the employer must be investigated to determine whether they are at fault.

Industrial accidents can be prevented; it is an employer’s responsibility to provide a safe and secure working environment for its employees. But when an injury occurs due to an industrial accident in the workplace, there is no guarantee that an employer will look out for the best interests of the injured employee as opposed to putting the company first. If you have been injured in the workplace, it is imperative that you contact an attorney who specializes in industrial accidents and workplace-related injuries. Getting hurt on the job can have long-lasting, even permanent, ramifications on your ability to earn a living, your relationship with your family and loved ones, and your overall quality of life. When you are injured in a workplace-related accident, you may not have the skills, time, or knowledge necessary to fight for yourself; but a qualified industrial accident lawyer will ensure that you are treated fairly, and in the manner in which you deserve. When you are not able to fight for yourself, an industrial accident lawyer will fight for you.
