According to the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) every year more than 4.1 million workers suffer a serious job-related injury or illness.
Workplace injuries generally fall into one of two categories:
Specific Injury: A sudden injury. For example, if you lift a heavy box and immediately experience low back pain or fall off a ladder and experience neck and low back pain.
Cumulative Injury: An injury that develops over time and is gradual in nature. For example, if you do repetitive work activities such as typing and you develop pain in your wrists.
