Georgia manufacturing jobs come with an abnormal number of hazards, compared to the average Georgia worker’s occupational risks. Manufacturing is a high-paced, often high-stress work environment in which employees may utilize razor sharp knives, heavy machinery, cumbersome tools, forklifts and other dangerous powered industrial trucks, conveyor belts, box cutters, dangerous or even toxic chemicals, and come into contact with extreme vibrations. Unfortunately, manufacturing warehouses, factories, and plants are not always operated under the most strict safety measures. While it is true that the majority of employers take the time to properly train all employees and make the necessary safety improvements to machinery and equipment, not all employers are so responsible. If you were injured, however, it does not matter whether it was your employer’s fault or your own. Workers’ compensation is no-fault coverage that can pay for your medical bills, partial wage replacement, vocational training, and possibly more depending on the severity of your injuries or illness. You must take action immediately, however, to secure these benefits by working with an experienced attorney and building a strong case. Workers’ compensation claims can be difficult, as insurers and employers often do whatever they can to deny injured employees their rightful benefits in order to keep their profits as high as possible.
Common Types of Injuries in Manufacturing Jobs
Manufacturing Jobs Among the Most Dangerous Types of Occupations in Georgia
To calculate how dangerous a certain occupations is, the total number of injuries and illnesses (that happened on the job) that require time off work are divided by the total number of full time workers within that occupation. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported a 3.1 rate of injury and illness for 100 full time Georgia manufacturing workers in 2015. To fully realize how dangerous manufacturing work can be, this ratio of 3.1 is even higher than that of most types of construction jobs. The most dangerous occupations within manufacturing include:
Manufacturing accidents happen no matter what specific industry you work in. Keeping up with quotas, using heavy machinery, and being exposed to certain hazardous or toxic chemicals and products is dangerous no matter how well trained or prepared you and your coworkers are. This is why workers’ compensation is so important. Part of every one of your paychecks goes towards financing your employer’s premiums for their mandatory workers’ compensation insurance, and you deserve to take advantage of these crucial benefits when you make it through this time of need.
