Hazards That Healthcare Workers Face

Many people do not think of the health care sector as an inherently dangerous place to work, but their jobs are both physically taxing and, at times, dangerous. Health care professionals often encounter workplace hazards that can lead to injuries, including but not limited to:

  • Lifting and Patient Handling
  • Sharp Injuries
  • Chemical Exposure
  • Latex Allergies
  • Stress
  • Slip and Falls
  • Verbal and Physical Abuse

Recent studies from the CDC have even shown that healthcare workers experience some of the highest occupational disease and injury rates in any sector. The good news is that healthcare workers are entitled to workers’ compensation for any injuries they sustain at work.

Common Types of Healthcare Worker Injuries

Health care worker injuries can encompass various forms, such as:

  • Back and Neck Injuries
  • Bone Fractures
  • Disease Transmission
  • Infections and Diseases
