What are the most common workplace-related accidents or injuries in Tampa Bay? 

 

1. Slip and Fall

This is by far the most common workplace accident among Tampa Bay workers or employees. Depending on the impact, this can lead to several injuries including: 

  • Broken bones 
  • Muscle sprains 
  • Soft tissue injuries 
  • Pinched nerves 
  • Cuts and abrasions 
  • Back and spinal cord injuries 
  • Shoulder or neck injuries
  • Hip fractures  
  • Knee injuries 

 

2. Muscle strains 

Muscle strains are another common workplace injury, especially for workers who regularly lift heavy objects. These injuries can easily be treated or prevented through basic training, proper stretching routines, and chiropractic care

 

3. Getting hit by falling objects 

These accidents usually happen to workers in warehouse-type environments. Sharp or heavy objects falling from shelves or counters can cause deep cuts, wounds, or serious injuries. That is why it is vital to provide secured storage counters and remind workers to store items accordingly. 



4. Inhaling Toxic Fumes 

People who work in laboratories or chemical factories are vulnerable to inhaling toxic fumes. Companies should firmly implement safety protocols for their workers. All staff members should always wear protective equipment and gear like safety goggles and gloves.
