Machines are used more frequently at workplaces. Industries that experience the most accidents that are manufacturing, mining, construction and agriculture. The reasons for that are, sharp edges , hot surfaces and other hazards with the potential to crush, burn, cut, shear, stab or otherwise wound workers if used unsafely.

How many people die as a result of a workplace accident?
So far this year – by November, 73 workers have died from traumatic injuries at work in Ontario.
51 workers per day suffered from overexertion injuries while lifting, pushing or pulling
43 workers per day suffered injuries like bruises, fractures or concussions when struck by equipment
40 workers per day slipped, tripped or fell, resulting in injuries ranging from minor sprains and multiple fractures to paralysis
12 workers per day were exposed to harmful substances that caused conditions like skin disorders or respiratory illnesses
10 workers per day had a hand, arm, leg or their entire body crushed by or caught in equipment
1 worker per day suffered burns or smoke inhalation from fires or explosions
These are just a few examples of some of the ways Ontario workers get injured or become ill each day. Remember, there are many more injuries that did not result in lost time, but still caused pain and suffering and sometimes permanent impairment or disfigurement.
In 2010, over 100 died from traumatic injuries.
More than 57,000 workers in Ontario suffered from injuries or serious illnesses as a result of dangerous hazards.
They all lost time at work. Some never completely recovered or returned to see their jobs or families again.
