What are the common types of work-related injuries and illnesses hospital workers sustain?

Hospitals are one of the most hazardous places to work, rivaling construction and manufacturing, which are the two industries traditionally thought to be dangerous for their workers. Improvements in workplace safety for construction and manufacturing, however, have outstripped those in hospitals.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the most common injuries that lead to hospital workers taking days off work are sprains and strains, bruises, soreness, fractures, multiple trauma, and cuts and punctures. The most common illnesses recorded are skin disorders and respiratory conditions, although the majority of cases fall into other unspecified categories.
