Workplace injuries can involve physical strain in muscles and tendons while lifting heavy items and injuries suffered from completing a regular task at work. Work related injuries can be accidental as well as intentional. Most likely any injuries that are sustained as a result of a work-based scenario can be entitled to compensation. Some work-based injuries can also come in the form of an illness. Such illnesses such as asthma can develop from unsafe work conditions and can be considered a workplace injury.
