Understanding the Risks of Working in the Automotive Industry

Working in the automotive industry is dangerous. Car mechanics, painters, glass installers, body repair workers, and auto shop employees handle toxic chemicals, dangerous machinery, and heavy car parts on a daily basis. Lack of adequate safety equipment and training could lead to serious injuries.

Injuries auto workers may suffer include:

  • Concussions
  • Broken bones
  • Accidental amputations
  • Burns
  • Electric shock injuries
  • Spinal cord trauma
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Toxic exposure

Lifting heavy equipment, bending down to reach for tools, and working with your arms above your head could lead to a serious repetitive stress injury. Rotator cuff tears, back and neck strain, disc herniations, and other injuries could occur from poor posture and overexertion. Using ergonomic equipment, such as lifting machines and back braces, could help prevent a repetitive stress injury.

Auto workers have a very hands-on job. They must operate complex machines and handle harsh chemicals on a daily basis. Using breathing masks and other safety equipment is necessary to prevent serious injuries. Faulty or improperly maintained equipment could malfunction and cause an accident, and loose cords or unsecured machine parts, tools, or vehicles also put workers at risk. If you have been injured while working at an auto shop, you have the right to file a workers’ compensation claim.
