Common work place accidents, Day 6 – Walking into Objects


Common Workplace Accidents Day 6. Walking into Objects

Walking into objects is a common occurrence. One may become distracted and simply walk into an object of which you didn’t expect to be there, either because you were distracted by another task or the object was not supposed to be there and obstructed your walkway.

Avoiding Injuries sustained by walking into Objects 

Many accidents in work from people walking into objects can be avoided by employers reminding their employees to be vigilant when walking through the workplace and by marking out any hazardous objects of which employees are more likely to walk into.

If it is a case where an employer has not provided adequate storage measures and object are left lying around the onus may be on the employer to ensure appropriate safety measures to avoid a hazardous working environment for their employees.
