Aims: Because social workers often interact with affected groups, they themselves are exposed to work-related injuries, so it is essential to address the issues that cause them to be harmed. The purpose of this study was to identify the most important occupational injuries of social workers employed in the martyrs and sacrificers foundation and to provide useful suggestions for prevention, coping or intervention in injuries.
Instrument & Methods: In this qualitative descriptive study, 80 employees working in the martyrs and sacrificers foundation in 2013, social workers of affiliated hospitals and professors of Allameh Tabatabai University were selected by targeted non random sampling. Data were collected by a respondent questionnaire and in an irregular (non-structured) interview. Descriptive statistics were used to analyze the data.
Finding: The causes of occupational injuries were organizational factors (60.0%), professional factors (30.0%) and factors related to the paitients (10.0%). Proposals were categorized into three general categories: scientific and specialized (37.5%), welfare and livelihood (31.25%) and legal (31.25%). In the field of scientific and specialized: holding specialized classes for updating employees information, in the field of welfare and livelihood: the requirement for employees to use compulsory Leave and Leisure, and in legal field: considering the severity of occupations and premature retirement were the most important solutions.
