Which human factors contribute to workplace injuries?

Many preventable occupational accidents and injuries result from human errors. It all boils down to the safety standards of the company and the enforcement of those regulations. Some employers in Oklahoma and elsewhere focus on profits instead of employee safety, often prompting human factors to come into play. It takes only one distracted worker to cause workplace injuries, not only to that person but also to co-workers.

National Stand-Down focuses on workplace injuries and fatal falls

This is the week of the National Stand-Down of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. This year the goal is to remind employers and employees in Oklahoma and across the country of the dangers of working at heights. Numbers provided by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics indicate that falls from elevated workplaces remain the primary cause of deaths and workplace injuries in the construction industry.

Power tools cause many serious workplace injuries

Hand held power tools are often not used with the necessary care. If the required safety standards are not followed, workplace injuries could even involve severed fingers or worse. Complacency among workers in Oklahoma and elsewhere cause most of these injuries. Safety authorities report that experienced workers are more often victims of power tool injuries than inexperienced workers.
