These are accidents that occur when a worker slips, trips, or falls while on the job, such as on icy surfaces, wet floors, or uneven terrain.

Falling Objects and Debris

Falling objects and debris especially from higher levels can hit people causing a major accident

Electric Shocks

There may be faulty wiring or live circuits that can be overlooked or mishandled causing an electric shock

It’s important to be safe, but also knowing how to prevent these accidents from happening is key.

Common Causes for NYC Factory Accidents

When you’re on the job, you want to be focused and prioritize on the task at hand. However, it is very easy to lose sight of what’s in front. From miscommunication to improper maintenance, there are many common causes that result in these accidents, such as:

Mishandling of Equipment and Machinery

Not being prepared or trained for certain machinery is easily preventable with proper manuals and training

Improper Maintenance of Equipment and Machinery

A huge cause for accidents is not properly maintaining equipment and the proper routines for caring for machinery

Lack of Proper Safe Equipment like Gas Masks

Prevention is key with high quality equipment and industrial grade products able to withstand extreme machinery use

Oversight of Small Tools and Objects

Loose objects and tools can cause someone if they aren't looking or machinery can get stuck if a tool or object is accidentally lodged

Many different things, small or large, can go wrong in a hazardous environment. When an accident happens from these mishaps, things can easily go wrong.

Serious Industrial Injuries That Can Happen

While we can try our best to avoid injuries by being safe and protecting ourselves, mishaps can happen and cause severe injuries. For manufacturing/factory incidents, these include:

Cuts and Burns

These can result from handling machinery and its components, falling objects during work, or contact with hot surfaces

Head Injuries

Head injuries, including concussions, if they are involved in accidents where their head hits a hard surface or experiences a sudden jolt.

Lower Back Injuries

Workers involved in lifting, carrying, or handling heavy machinery may experience back injuries, such as herniated discs, muscle strains, or spinal injuries.


Severe trauma to certain parts of the body such as spinal injury may cause loss of motor function and result in paralysis.

Lifelong Internal Injuries

Working with heavy machinery may cause internal trauma and result in lifelong internal injuries.


If any of these happen, know that you have rights as a worker to receive workers’ compensation!

Workers’ Compensation Benefits
for Industrial and Manufacturing Workers

If you are an industrial, factory, or manufacturing worker and got injured in an industrial site or at some point during work, you are legally entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. In New York State, all employers are legally obligated to have workers’ compensation insurance which has your back covered in case of an industrial accident. These benefits may include, but are not limited to the following:

Medical Care

Workers are covered with medical treatment/care and reimbursed for medical expenses including doctor visits, testing, prescription, surgery, and more.

Lost Wage Reimbursement

Workers temporarily unable to go back to work are able to receive reimbursements for lost wages. These cash payments are usually 2/3 of their average weekly wages or maximum approved payment.

Permanent Disability Benefits

Also called Scheduled Loss of Use (SLU), these are cash benefits paid to workers who have suffered permanent injuries and are unable to return back to work.

Vocational Rehabilitation

If the injury has caused the worker to not be able to return back to their previous job field, vocational rehabilitation allows them to receive employment through training benefits and job placement.

Death Benefits for Family Members
