Common workplace injuries include:
Neck, spine, and lower back injuries
Shoulder and arm injuries
Head injuries including TBI (traumatic brain injury) and concussions
Leg pain and foot injuries
Falls and industrial accidents
Arthritis from degenerative or repetitive trauma at work
Hearing loss and damage

How Industrial and Granite Workers Get Injured
Though most physical injuries to granite workers and factory workers occur as a result of machinery accidents, short-term and long-term exposure to hazardous materials can also compromise a worker’s health.
Improperly enforced safety codes and regulations often result in machinery malfunctions or negligent operation, both of which put factory workers at high risk for injury and disability.
