You’re probably going to be fine…
But here’s why you should report your workplace injury anyway.
No matter where you work or what industry you work in, workplace injuries are more common than you think.
People slip and fall, machinery malfunctions, doors swing open, and more. In fact, some of the most benign occurrences—like electric shocks and carpal tunnel syndrome—are among the most common work-related injuries and don’t always happen in manual labor industries.
When an injury seems small and inconsequential, it feels natural to go about your business without reporting it. After all, no one wants to enter a legal battle with their employer.
But reporting your injury isn’t only about pursuing a claim. It’s about protecting yourself, your peers, and your employer from future accidents or lawsuits.
