3rd shifters’ high risk of injury + how to journal & how to protect $ during COVID
Third shift workers more at risk for injuries on the job, studies show
No matter how diligent you are on the job, there is no way to completely control the co-workers around you. And third shift workers are the most prone to accidents, since overnight shifts often result in employees getting less sleep than their bodies need, affecting concentration and response times. According to hg.org:
“Working the night shift may lead to workplace incidences that cause injuries to night shift workers. This may be due to lack of sleep, fatigue or lack of supervision. Studies have shown that some workers may be two or three times at higher risk to obtain long-term harm while working with little or no supervision at night. Often, these injuries may last for over 30 days. Such workplace accidents may occur when workers fail to follow regulations or take unnecessary risks.”
That is why it is extremely important to consult with an attorney experienced with work injuries if you are ever hurt on the job, so that you can best preserve your legal rights. An attorney will help you prove what really happened and identify steps that could have been taken to prevent the injury in the first place, ultimately helping your claim.
