Industrial accidents are accidents which involve the workplace. These accidents may vary from minor spills to large disasters that affect many people. There are two types of industrial accidents. The first is external accidents, which affect the environment surrounding the accident zone. One example of this the BP oil spill of 2010. This oil spill affected the entire environment surround the spill including wildlife, commerce, and even waterfront property. The second type of industrial accident involves internal accidents. These are accidents affecting the people working within a factory or work-site. An example of this form of accident is mechanical failure where people or workers are injured.

External industrial accidents

Typically, an external industrial accident involves oil or chemical spills, toxic gas leaks, radiation leaks and fires. These accidents are caused by different circumstances such as: human error, mechanical failures, component errors, organizational negligence or shortcuts, defective software or lack of compliance to protocol. Other  causes are natural disasters or outside interference.

Internal industrial accidents

This form of accident includes industrial owned or controlled factors. Examples of such involve machinery items for metalworking, agricultural work, woodworking, printing machines, furnaces, scaffolding, refrigerators, tire-making machines, hand tools or ladders.

Workers Compensation

Under the law, workers compensation typically protects employers from being sued by injured workers. However, there are some areas where liability may be present. For example, if an employer is aware of a work environment being unsafe and does not take the appropriate measures to keep its employees safe, liability can be a factor. If there are complications with machinery, liability may lie with the manufacturer, maintenance company or training company associated with the machine.

Unsafe Conditions

Unsafe conditions are situations which may cause a dangerous work environment. Examples of an unsafe work condition include poor lighting, loud noise, unstable or slippery flooring, exposure to extreme temperatures or hazardous materials, electrical malfunctions or unstable structures.
