    • Overexertion: Back injuries and pulled muscles in the workplace are common in construction, manufacturing, factory work, and other occupations where physical labor is required.
    • Slip-and-Fall Accidents: Slip-and-falls often take place on wet floors that have a spill or were recently cleaned.
    • Struck-by-Object Accidents: Objects fall off shelves, employees drop items, and projectiles are sent flying. Resulting injuries are common in office spaces, restaurants, retail, and construction, among other industries.
