Avoiding Personal Injury with Personal Awareness

Avoiding Personal Injury with Personal Awareness

We can’t control if our environment is unsafe, but being aware of your surroundings can help prevent unwanted and dangerous injuries.

Having personal safety awareness is essential to avoiding injury. With these critical steps, you can keep yourself safe and avoid life-altering injuries. In addition, if you suffer an injury, showing a court you took these essential steps can help you win the damages you deserve for lost income and cover medical expenses.

How To Practice Personal Safety Awareness

When entering a work site or somewhere new, look around and see if any signs warn against entering or other dangerous facets. For example, is there a “do not enter” sign or a sign warning of possible electric wires? In your personal life, this could mean looking out for signs of dogs or not climbing a fence.

Next, consider if you should be wearing personal protective equipment, such as a hard hat, mask, gloves, or suit. You’ll also want to ensure you wear proper shoes for your environment.

If your employer offers a safety program, be sure to take it and then follow the rules. If you see an unsafe situation, report it immediately.

Do not take shortcuts or rush using dangerous machinery in a work environment. If there is a lock on a machine, engage it when you’re finished.

Don’t wear headphones or engage in other distractions that could cause injury, such as using a phone while driving.

You will also want to know your body’s ergonomics while working. Think about if your posture or how you’re lifting things could hurt your back. Be mindful when completing repetitive tasks that could cause a strain or sprain.

What Should I Do If I’ve Suffered A Personal Injury?

The first thing you should do if you’ve suffered a personal injury is to seek medical attention. Then, contact Hyland & Padilla right away.

We offer complimentary constellations, so you can under the chances of your case and receive the best legal representation possible. We want you to receive the damages you deserve to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

    Los abogados de Hyland & Padilla me ayudaron a recuperarme de mi accidente en 2017. Me caí al trabajo, me rompí la pierna izquierda y no pude trabajar. Andrea me ayudó con los tribunales y consiguió dinero para mi lesión. Ahora no tengo que elegir entre pagar las facturas y recuperarme de una pierna fracturada.
