There are several different types of industries that have a high rate of work-related injuries because of the nature of the work that employees engage in. Workers in the following industries are injured on a regular basis:
- Fabrication of doors, windows, car parts, and other manufactured goods
- Food processing such as the operations of the Campbell Soup Company
- Petroleum service companies engaged in gas and oil extraction and processing
- Hydraulic fracturing, also known as fracking
- Oil and mineral refinery operations
- Chemical processing
Industrial workers tend to have a high rate of work-related accidents and injuries because they are often near heavy machinery and hazardous chemicals. Working conditions can be unduly hot, cold, dusty, noisy, smoke/fume-filled and close to rapidly moving machine parts and tools. Although there are rules, regulations, protective gear, and refined processes to reduce the risk of injuries, they do not always prevent them. Accidents can happen.
