Types of Industrial Accidents
As industrial jobs have become more complex and mechanized over the years, the risk of human injury has increased as well. Oil refineries, manufacturing plants, and construction sites expose workers to a wide variety of different hazards and can cause debilitating injury in the event of an accident, including amputations, brain injuries, burns, degloving injuries, and crush injuries. Industrial accidents are often the result of unsafe conditions, negligent acts of supervisors or coworkers, or a failure to adhere to established safety guidelines.
Commonly occurring industrial accidents include:
- Plant explosions
- Chemical spills
- Scaffolding accidents
- Equipment malfunctions
- Forklift accidents
- Crane accidents
- Oil rig accidents
