These injuries not only affect physical health but can also lead to emotional stress and a decrease in overall quality of life.

To effectively address work injuries, it is essential to recognize their common types. These often include musculoskeletal issues like back pain, neck strain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and joint injuries.
