Workers become injured while performing their job duties in various ways, from accidents that result from careless co-worker behavior to weather-related mishaps. However, some accidents are caused by a lack of training and familiarity with numerous types of equipment and job-related duties. For example, someone may have a position which requires them to operate some sort of vehicle, or they may be asked to do so by a manager temporarily, even though they are not qualified.
