Each year, over one million work-related injuries are reported in Canada. In 2009, there were 15.5 cases of work-related injuries per 1000 employed Canadians. What can you do to stay safe and healthy at work?
Many people get hurt working at jobs that don't seem dangerous. There are many gradual or unexpected ways to damage your muscles, bones, or skin.
Just because you can't see it or feel it doesn't mean it can't hurt you. The air you breathe, the sounds you hear and even your interactions with other people can harm your health.
In spite of efforts at prevention, work-related injuries sometimes happen. When one does, don't just "get back to work" - take care of it right away.
