Electricians, construction workers and kitchen staff are probably more at risk from burns although burns can also affect all workers.  Those who work closely with live currents are most at risk and sometimes accidents can result in fatal electrocution.

Back Injuries

Back injuries at work are probably most likely to affect office workers and drivers who may work for long periods of time with a bad posture.
