Small-Business Workplace Injuries


According to Hartford Financial Services Group's "2015 Small Business Success Study," just 29 percent of small-business owners are concerned about an employee being injured on the job.

However, a five-year analysis of Hartford's claims data found that there is a 50 percent chance a small business will experience a claim in the next 10 years.

The most common workplace injuries, according to the "Injury Impact Report" from the Travelers Cos. are:
  • Strains and sprains (30 percent).
  • Cuts or punctures (19 percent).
  • Contusions (12 percent).
  • Inflammation (5 percent).
  • Fractures (5 percent).
  • All other injuries (29 percent).
This info-graphic is a summary of Hartford's findings on small-business workplace injuries.
