Common Causes of Prison and Jail Worker Injuries
With the dangers associated of working closely to criminals, it should come as no surprise that prison and jail workers sustain a variety of injuries while on the job. Below are some of the more common injuries associated with prison and jail workers.
- Assaults and violent acts. Violent behavior is not uncommon among prisoners and those held in jail. This puts prison and jail workers in an especially dangerous position each and every day. Injuries sustained by assaults and violent attacks include various cuts and bruises, as well as more serious injuries like internal organ damage.
- Transportation-related. Any occupation that deals with a vehicle on a regular basis is at some sort of risk for injury, and prison and jail workers are no different. The injuries associated with transportation include various acute and chronic injuries, some that may lead to a lifetime of pain.
- Falls. Perhaps the most common injury in the workplace, fall accidents can happen to anybody. A safe work environment is essential to preventing fall injuries, but even workers in the best kept environments can still get hurt. Fall accidents may result in sprains, strains, or fractures, and may lead to long-term pain.
- Overexertion. In some cases, prison and jail workers will get injured due to overexertion, especially in instances in which they perform an abnormally physically demanding task. Overexertion can lead to many different injuries, particularly sprains and strains and various chronic pain.
