Workplace Injuries Related To Factory Accidents

Manufacturing plants and industrial plants are a common scene of on-the-job injuries. Many job sites drive warehouse and factory workers to extreme paces.

This relentless demand for more efficient production and efficiency can become extremely dangerous. Labor attorney Joe Burns recently summed up the situation, stating that, “Employers have been able to aggressively attack work rules…the ‘lean production’ methods of the early 1990s decreased the idle time for auto workers at one plant from 15 seconds a minute to a mind-numbing three seconds per minute. Working at this kind of speed leads to more stress on the job and a greater chance of employee injury.”*
