Workplace injuries can happen anywhere. OSHA, or the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration, has cited an Ohio golf course for failing to adhere to policy in lieu of a worker's work injury incident. After a full investigation, OSHA cited the golf course on several worker safety violations. The citations were for actions or inactions, taken before or after the worker's injury incident.
If you suffer injuries in a workplace accident, you may be aware of the fact that you could be entitled to certain types of benefits through a workers' compensation claim. However, these benefits are also available to Ohio individuals who are sick because of their jobs. If your work is the reason for your illness, you could have a valid claim.
When a person catches a cold or is feeling otherwise tired or un-well, they often check in with their body to see if there is something going on that's causing them illness or injury. However, mental health isn't always treated the same. Mental health is just as important as physical health but is often overlooked by the general public. Luckily, Social Security Disability benefits are not as biased.
You may believe because you work in an office or in a job that does not require any type of physical labor that you are not likely to suffer a workplace accident. However, there are certain types of safety threats that could be hiding in your workplace, no matter where you work. It is smart to know how to protect your safety and what you can do to in case of a work accident.
There is a law in Ohio that states a vehicle must move over to the next lane if there is a vehicle pulled over with lights flashing. There are several reasons that this law is in place, the most important being to save human lives. This is because when people are on the side of the road, they are in danger of being struck by another vehicle. This is exactly what happened to an Ohio construction worker on the side of Highway 24.
After years of time spent in the workforce, it's a wonder that more people's bodies don't give out before they are ready. Granted, some people do make it to retirement largely unscathed, but those who aren't so lucky, what are their options? Mental or physical disability could come unexpectedly, rendering a person unable to work.
