Several other forms of work-related accidents are relatively common, in addition to the most common occupational injuries. Many personnel, for example, sustain concussions and broken bones as a result of traumatic events, and chronic stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome are common.
Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)
Work-related fatalities hit a 12-year high in 2019, according to new data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, with more than 5,300 deaths. The average number of accidents per 100 full-time employees remained unchanged at 2.8 in November 2020, according to the BLS Employer Related Workplace Injuries and Illnesses News Release. Over the previous 15 years, the number has gradually decreased, staying constant from year to year.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) occupational injury statistics from 2020, the following occupations had the highest rates per 10,000 full-time equivalents (FTE) employees. Notably, all ten professions had higher occurrence rates in 2019 than in 2018. The following professions have the highest rates of occupational injuries:

Nursing assistants
Heavy truck and tractor-trailer truck drivers
Laborers and freight, stock, and material movers
Light truck drivers
Construction laborers
Maintenance and repair workers
Janitors and cleaners
Retail salesperson
Registered nurses
Stockers and order filers

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)
The following are some of the OSHA occupational injury statistics:

In 2014, over 4,000 employees in the United States were killed on the job.
In 2020, one out of every five occupational deaths will be in the building sector.
Workplace deaths have decreased by more than 60% since 1970, and occupational accidents have decreased by 40%.

When you look at those statistics, you’ll find that the number of injuries has decreased. This is mainly attributed to OSHA and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s tighter guidelines (NIOSH).
Despite OSHA and other organization’s efforts to reduce occupational injuries, it is unlikely that they will ever be eliminated. It is challenging to deal with a workplace accident that necessitates site cleaning and sanitization. You could be mistaken if you send the janitor for the following reasons:

A potential susceptibility to a bloodborne pathogen
Health and safety rules have been broken.
An inexperienced cleanup crew

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
According to the CDC, vehicle accidents are the first or second leading cause of death in any major industry group. In 2018, 1,276 U.S. employees died in a work-related accident while driving or riding in a motor vehicle on a public road, representing a 24 percent increase over the previous year.

Transportation and warehousing accounted for 38 percent of these 1,276 deaths, led by construction (12 percent), wholesale and retail trade (9 percent), and agriculture, forestry, fishing, and hunting (7 percent).
Semi, tractor-trailer, and tanker trucks accounted for 38 percent of all road deaths, followed by pickup trucks (17 percent), delivery trucks/vans (9 percent), and cars (7 percent).

Staff driving or riding in a motor vehicle off a public road, or pedestrians hit by motor vehicles, accounted for another 550 deaths in 2018. MVCs at work isn’t just a problem for truck, bus, taxi, or taxicab drivers. In 2018, 57 percent of staff who died were not employed as motor vehicle operators.
Only a few occupations accounted for 46 percent of the 325 pedestrian worker deaths in 2018: heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers, construction workers, and grounds maintenance workers.
Your employer can be liable for missed wages or other accommodations if you are injured on the job due to a car accident. That is why it is crucial to understand your legal rights. Employers in each state are required by statute to carry workers’ compensation insurance. If an employee is recovering from a work-related accident or sickness, the insurer covers a percentage of their daily earnings.
