Studies show trends, probability for worker injury

Accidents happen -- or, so they say. While there are freak accidents not associated with any fault, rarely does this happen in the workplace. The truth is, most work accidents and injuries are entirely preventable. This is why it is so important to track emerging trends in workplace accidents and injuries to determine where problems lie in the workplace. One or several overseeing bodies, such as OSHA, can set regulations for employers to help prevent these workplace accidents and their resounding injuries from occurring.

Preventable hazards threatening safety of construction workers

Ohio workers know construction sites can be risky places to work. From heavy equipment to working from heights, there are various risks associated with working in this particular industry. While this can be a hazardous occupation, the men and women who work on these sites have the right to a reasonable expectation for safety. 

Depression may qualify an applicant for disability benefits

Depression is a serious mental illness that can deprive a person of their ability to enjoy life, maintain their health and hold down a job. Ohio residents who struggle with depression understand the severe impact that it can have on one's own life and that of their family. In some situations, depression may be so serious that it qualifies its victims for disability benefits.

Workplace injuries, Ohio railroad workers and FELA

Some people are not cut out for desk jobs. There is an allure of working with your hands or not being chained to a desk. However, certain manual labor jobs are more dangerous than the average office job. FELA, or Federal Employers Liability Act, was designed to protect railroad workers and to give them recourse, if they suffer an injury on the job.

Are common workplace hazards threatening your safety?

Ohio readers know that workplace safety is crucial, no matter the type of job or industry. As an employee, you have the right to a reasonable expectation of safety on the job, even if your job comes with certain inherent risks. Employers have the responsibility of making sure you are as safe as possible and have what you need to complete your job safely.

City cited for workplace safety violations

Going to work every day should not be something that we fear from physical standpoint. Yet, often individuals are hurt in workplace injuries that leave them with serious injuries. These injuries can be difficult to overcome, and the damages associated with them can be extensive. Medical expenses can quickly pile up, and these victims may miss work to focus on their health, causing them to be subjected to lost wages. As trying as this can be for workplace accident victims, they may find relief through workers' compensation benefits.
