Industrial Accident Injuries | Causes

Industrial accidents can have a single or multiple cause. Sometimes these cannot be controlled and are simply random occurrences. But often, they are the result of someone’s carelessness or negligence. And on occasion, they occur due to the malicious actions of others. Industrial accidents have occurred as a result of:

  • Industrial pollution
  • Equipment malfunction
  • Failure of safety equipment
  • Horseplay in the workplace
  • Inclement weather
  • Inadequate safety rules and policies
  • Collisions

Sadly, many of these industrial accidents (as well as others not listed) are the result of someone not doing what they were supposed to do.
