Your employer might even be cautious of allowing you to do the same work again if you have been injured before.

Unsafe and Defective Machinery

On any job site, any number of power tools and machinery could be used over the course of a construction project. With any number of subcontractors using their own tools and machinery, it’s impossible to be sure if each piece of equipment has been properly maintained, sure of its quality manufacture or sure of safety measures built into the product.
