NYC Healthcare Workers’ Accidents

As bustling and beautiful New York City is, it also has its fair share of unexpected injuries. With it being so condensed and busy, many people come in and out of clinics and hospitals. This makes it harder to stay careful and focused, and may result in random accidents.

Slips, trips, falls

Cuts

Fires and explosions

Equipment and machine accidents

Exposure to harmful substances

Exposure to illnesses and infections

Data from the NYS DOL show that healthcare workers face higher accidents and injuries than others like office workers. It goes up for larger hospitals and more for public sectors. Thus, it’s important to know the common causes and make sure to prevent these accidents!

Common Causes of Healthcare Worker Accidents

Prevention is key in making sure you’re safe. An accident can change your life significantly.
