A substantial number of people on disability in America are on Social Security Disability due to illnesses and injuries that they suffered on the job or that are related to their work. The manufacturing industry is sometimes tough on the body, so it’s possible that people in this industry may need to seek Social Security Disability Insurance in the future as well.

In manufacturing, some of the most common injuries are related to slip and fall accidents, overexertion, machine-related accidents and exposure to harmful chemicals. Any of these accidents or incidents may result in serious injuries that cause a lasting disability.
