Workplace injuries can be divided into two categories: acute and chronic. Acute injuries are sudden and severe, often the result of an accident. Common examples include cuts, burns, and broken bones. Chronic injuries, on the other hand, develop over time and are usually the result of repetitive motions. They can be just as debilitating as acute injuries, but may not be immediately apparent. Carpal tunnel syndrome, for example, is a common chronic injury that can develop from typing or using tools without proper ergonomic support. Other examples include back pain and tendonitis. Both types of workplace injuries can have a serious impact on employees’ health and productivity. Therefore, it is important for employers to provide a safe work environment and ensure that employees are properly trained in how to avoid injuries.
