Added to this loss is the financial worry, possible unemployment and anxiety about the health of the worker. It is easy to imagine the enormous strain that these families are under as they try to put their lives back together.
The workplace itself can also suffer after an accident as other employees and management try to come to terms with its effects. The business can be affected by the loss of morale amongst its workers, decreased productivity as well as the financial burden of increased insurance premiums.
