No, thankfully. I was robbed at gunpoint once on the job and attacked by a guy wielding a pair of scissors another time, but escaped unharmed in each incident.

Yes, but nothing more than cuts or bruises.

We had some squall move in like that (I just snapped my fingers). I ran to tie down boats and collect electrical equipment. As I was running, I stepped on a crater thing. Messed up my ankle for about a month. Never found out what happened.

A few times when I used to umpire and work at McDonalds.
Nothing serious though...and everything that happened at McDonalds was my fault anyway.

Nothing requiring escalation to OSHA.

Several times but never really badly. The worst was an autoclave burn; totally my own fault, I reached to shut off an alarm just as I was opening the door, & I burned the crap out of my dominant hand. Pressurized steam burns are nasty. Once I fell

on an asphalt path just outside work, cut up my knee, & had to have a tetanus shot because of the dirt in the wound. Once I was bitten by a mouse &, again, had to have a tetanus shot. I named the mouse Mr Nasty after that.

Nope. Safety first. Most workplace accidents are due to negligence.

I had hot fry grease splashed on my face when I worked at Wendy's as a teenager.

Yes, but nothing big enough to need to go to the emergency room. Minor cuts, scrapes, bruises, and burns, a loud tone through the headset that caused temporary hearing loss, and an electrical shock that was pretty scary. Normal stuff.

Several times. We work with very tiny and sharp instruments. Not uncommon to have small cuts. But nothing too serious. Yet...

I had to push in all these outside sale roll tainers and u-boats.. And one night they put too much soda on one and I was pushing it up a slight hill and hurt my back. I didn't report it or anything and the pain went after a few days though.

Yeah me too. Otherwise that would have sucked not having reported it.

A large filling cabinet fell on me at work today.

Are you ok and did you report it?

Yep. I'm at the doctor they told me to go to to get checked out. My wrist is killing me.

Oh Emily, I hope it's okay. Keep us posted, please.

Well I hope you heal up quickly, that sucks. But I'm glad you reported it.

I hope your wrist turns out to just hurt for a little while (that's bad enough), and isn't actually damaged. Having a file cabinet fall on you seems like it could be a really bad thing.

Its not broken, though I didn't think it was. They are treating it like a fracture and I have to wear a splint for a week.

Not broken is great news! Wait, a splint? It's not your wine hand is it?
