The impact of injury

Injury may also impact on the workers livelihood, career, family and lifestyle, more so when they receive permanent impairment, are unfit to work for an extended period or are unable to return to their job.  This would require that they are re-trained in a different job type. When serious incidents and injury occur in a workplace general moral may also be affected too, which make the workplace unpleasant.
