And, in the chemistry lab the presence of the chemicals can make those trauma injuries worse. Suppose a student tries to clean up a broken beaker with a corrosive chemical spill from it having been in the beaker. Now you may have a cut or mower than one contaminated by that corrosive chemical which depending on the severity of the cut may let that chemical into the bloodstream where the nature of the injury will now be much worse.
I always stressed to my students that lab isn't like ordinary life and the consequences of mistakes can be for more severe. They were trained to ask my help and advice for every accident and I always praised them for asking(For whatever reason students are afraid to admit to errors because they expect some sort of punishment- I gave them praise each time to get rid of their fears.)

A lot of commentary on this list is concerned with hazards and injuries
related to chemical exposure, but non-chemical injuries are also a
concern. For an overview, here is a clip of a trauma surgeon commenting
on all the injuries incurred in the movies Home Alone and Home Alone 2.
