Even with strong safety regulation in place, workplace injuries often occur in Alabama and around the country. The most common causes of workplace injuries are preventable if measures to prevent the causes are put in place and followed by employers and employees.
Too many workers are either driven to work too long by their employers or by themselves, leading them to be fatigued. Fatigue, in turn, can lead to poor decision-making, delayed responses and slower reflexes when operating machinery, and thus can cause resulting injuries. Similarly, a person who is dealing with a lot of stress may be distracted and make errors that can then result in injury.
