Less obvious injuries can also be debilitating

While there are certain high-risk occupations in which catastrophic injuries seem to be par for the course, any worker can suffer on-the-job injuries. Those working in the construction and manufacturing industries are especially susceptible to injuries that result from falls or being crushed by heavy equipment. Although mostly avoidable, those incidents typically happen in an instant as the result of a safety violation. Some equally devastating injuries sometimes follow actions that don't seem risky, and therefore were not avoided.
