Another common injury at work is when workers are struck or hit by one of the number of hazards in the workplace. In most cases, there are no specific precautions that can be taken because there are a variety of hazards that fall into this category. Injuries or accidents can occur when there is not enough space between objects and equipment. Injuries can also occur when passing under equipment and materials and whilst also passing through walkways.
 

Slip, trip and falls
 
A lot of workers suffer injury through falling off ladders and other raised platforms, such as when stacking shelves or doing construction work. Your employer must ensure COMPENSATION ADVICE INJURY ACCIDENT COMPENSATION LAWYER SOLICITOR COMPENSATION – ACCIDENT COMPENSATION LAWYERS AUSTRALIA – NEW SOUTH WALES – NSW – QUEENSLAND – QLD - WORKERS COMPENSATION - WORK ACCIDENTS LAWYERS – QCOMP – WORKCOVER - FALL TRIP INJUREDthat the equipment you are using is secure and all appropriate safety checks have been carried out regularly. Often slip, trip and fall injuries occur in the workplace due to a myriad of hazards often present on the surface of workplaces, such misplaced objects and equipment and hazardous materials such as oil or water.
 
Machine Accidents
 
Machinery-related accidents are also quite common and because of the new and complicated COMPENSATION ADVICE INJURY ACCIDENT COMPENSATION LAWYER SOLICITOR COMPENSATION – ACCIDENT COMPENSATION LAWYERS AUSTRALIA – NEW SOUTH WALES – NSW – QUEENSLAND – QLD - WORKERS COMPENSATION - WORK ACCIDENTS LAWYERS – QCOMP – WORKCOVER - HEAVY TOOLS MACHINEmethods of production constantly being introduced, lack of knowledge about operation leads to injuries. Your employer must ensure that you always wear appropriate safety equipment when working with machinery, such as goggles, gloves, protective shoes and coveralls. There are many different types of injuries that can occur from operating machinery and tools. Often injuries occur due to inadequate training and/or lack of experience.
 
Repetitive Strain (RSI)
 
With the huge rise in the number of computers used by firms nationwide it was inevitable that the number of RSI (repetitive strain injury) compensation claims would rise with it. The largest contributor to the repetitive strain section of work compensation claims is poor research into counter-measures by employers. As an employee it is your right to work in a safe environment and it is the duty of your employers to provide that safety. If an employer requires you to spend eight hours a day sat at a desk working on a computer then it is their responsibility to ensure that all possible measures are taken to avoid repetitive strain injuries.
 
A common example of repetitive strain disorder in relation to computers is that of pain in the wrist COMPENSATION ADVICE INJURY ACCIDENT COMPENSATION LAWYER SOLICITOR COMPENSATION – ACCIDENT COMPENSATION LAWYERS AUSTRALIA – NEW SOUTH WALES – NSW – QUEENSLAND – QLD - WORKERS COMPENSATION - WORK ACCIDENTS LAWYERS – QCOMP – WORKCOVER - OFFICE INJURY RSI TYPdue to repeatedly typing on a keyboard or the continued use of a mouse. Some even find that this spreads up to the shoulder and back. This syndrome can be avoided through the use of ergonomic chairs, keyboards, mice and other ergonomic equipment, all of which are readily available in many stores throughout Australia. It is in an employer's interests to provide such items to vulnerable staff as the liability for the resulting repetitive stress on the muscles and joints will be on them and their insurance policies. Injuries involving repetition in the workplace often result in the individual being unable to work for some time after the strain and stress first sets in which is where the loss of earnings and future loss of earnings part of the RSI compensation claim has to be taken into consideration.

Industrial Deafness
 
Exposure to excessive or sustained noise at work can cause permanent hearing loss.

The hearing loss may take many years before you notice it, or can happen more quickly. It will probably come on gradually, and people often first notice it when friends or family comment that they have the television on loud, or that they fail to hear what they are saying.
 
As well as suffering hearing loss noise at work may also cause tinnitus, that is a ringing or other sound in their ears. This can be a very severe and aggravating condition that affects people 24 hours a day.
 
People suffer hearing loss whilst doing many different kinds of job, from working in a night club to working on a farm.
 
In most jobs the risk of suffering hearing loss depends on the noise levels in the work place and the length of time that the noise continues. However, the higher the noise levels the less time it takes to cause hearing loss.
