What are the Most Common Fears Associated With On the Job Injuries?

Posted by James Aspell | Jan 06, 2023 | 0 Comments

There are many fears that people might have when they get hurt at work. Some common fears might include:

  1. Fear of losing their job: If someone is unable to work because of an injury, they may be afraid of losing their job and being unable to support themselves or their family.

  2. Fear of being unable to pay medical bills: Injuries can often result in expensive medical bills, and people may be afraid of not being able to pay these bills.

  3. Fear of not being able to return to work: Some people may be worried that they will not be able to return to their job after an injury, or that they will have to take on a different role that pays less.

  4. Fear of further injury: If someone has already been injured, they may be worried about getting injured again, especially if their job involves physical labor or hazardous conditions.

  5. Fear of the unknown: In general, people may be afraid of the unknown consequences of an injury, including how long it will take to recover and what the long-term effects will be.
