Work-related injury, or occupational injury, is bodily damage as a result of working. Injuries can be short or long-term, and usually result from some type of physical activity.
Why this Matters
For My Organization
Organizations are adversely affected by work-related injuries in many ways: loss of valuable employees; decrease in productivity; litigation and disability costs. By providing safety education and ensuring a safe work environment, these risks can be mitigated.
For New Orleans
New Orleans is more socially and economically healthy when its citizens are able to work. It can also be costly to pay disability.
