Workplace Accidents in Colorado Springs

Common Types of On-the-Job Accidents

According to Colorado Workplace Fatalities 2010, a report from the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, motor vehicle accidents were the most common type of fatal workplace accident in the state in 2010. A traffic collision may be covered by workers' compensation provided that it occurred in the performance of the victim's job duties. The next most common type of accident involved self-inflicted injuries, followed by being struck by an object or equipment, and falls from heights.

Workplace accidents can occur under a variety of circumstances. They frequently involve some type of violation of the regulations of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, such as unguarded machinery, an unsecure scaffold or ladder, or unprotected electrical currents. In other cases, they may be attributed to the negligence of a co-worker, for example, such as by leaving a box in a walkway or dropping an item on the accident victim. Even the accident victim's own clumsiness or oversight may be to blame.
