Do You Work At A Movie Theater? Watch Out For On-The-Job Injuries

This post is written on behalf of Law Offices of Mauro Fiore, Jr.

If you work at a movie theater, you expect your job to be relatively straightforward. Your primary job duties may include selling tickets, serving popcorn and cleaning theaters. Whatever you do, you play an important part in providing a comfortable and entertaining environment for moviegoers.

However, while you may think your job is mostly simple or even enjoyable, there are some hazards at movie theaters that may cause you harm. Movie theater safety is crucial not only for patrons but for workers too. Here is a look at how your job may cause you to sustain an injury.

Workplace accidents at movie theaters

Here are some prevalent movie theater employee accidents:

  • Slipping and falling because of spilled food or drink
  • Tripping and falling because of poorly lit hallways, walkways or stairs
  • Developing a repetitive stress injury due to repeated motions, such as scooping popcorn or sweeping walkways
  • Getting burned because of hot cooking equipment, butter or oil
  • Being the victim of a violent attack

Any of these situations may result in minor or major injuries.

Movie theater injuries

These incidents may result in a variety of health issues, including the following:

  • Fractures
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Second- and third-degree burns
  • Cuts and lacerations

If you suffer any of these injuries, you may face expensive medical bills, lost wages and disabilities.

What to do if you get hurt at your movie theater job

Sustaining an injury at your occupation may cause a lot of stress and concern. If you experience a workplace accident, take the following steps:

  • Report the injury to your supervisor as soon as possible
  • Document the accident
  • Contact witnesses
  • Seek prompt medical attention
  • Follow the treatment directions from your doctor

If you have a successful workers’ compensation claim, you will receive benefits to pay for medical costs and a portion of your lost wages. If you have questions about a claim or the benefits you are entitled to, speak with an attorney.
