In one part of the organization, a worker develops carpal tunnel syndrome from repetitive motions incurred while sitting at a desk.

Elsewhere in the same organization, a worker nearly falls off a platform – but manages to right himself just in time.

The first event is a recordable injury. The second, which could have resulted in a serious injury or fatality, might never be known by anyone other than the fortunate worker and a few colleagues.
