There are many, somewhat exotic hazards in workplaces, and these can lead to unique, attention-grabbing and even horrifying injuries.

Overview/Description By contrast, manual material handling can seem somewhat humdrum, and the work-related musculoskeletal disorders it causes can be easy to overlook. But overlook this hazard at your peril and at the peril of your employees as well.
  • In 2012, overexertion and bodily reaction were the leading cause of lost-time occupational injuries, accounting for 36.6 percent of all lost-time nonfatal cases, even more than slips, trips, and falls (24.2 percent).
  • According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the back was the body part most frequently affected in 2012 private-sector injuries involving days away from work. Back injuries accounted for 19.6 percent of those 905,690 injuries, significantly higher than the hand (13.4 percent), shoulder (7.5 percent), knee (8.5 percent), or head (5.0 percent).
Total time lost to work-related injuries in 2013 was 60 million days, and another 35 million days of the productive time were lost in that year because of permanently disabling injuries that had occurred in prior years. Course Content
