Construction workers threatened by poor air quality

Construction workers in Ohio may face a number of hazards on the job, from unsafe working conditions to unstable equipment to poor air quality. During a construction project, workers can be exposed to toxic chemicals, silica dust, gases and other contaminants. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health has created recommendations for acceptable indoor environmental quality during a building or renovation process. There are several factors that could contribute to dangerously poor air quality on a construction job, including a lack of action to control dust or the use of building materials that emit a significant amount of gases or contaminants.

How disability cases are decided

Ohio residents who have a frozen shoulder may be able to qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. However, this assumes that there is medical evidence to support the diagnosis. Furthermore, they must be able to show that they have not been able to work for the past 12 months or will not be able to over the next 12 months. An examiner will consider the impact that the injury has on an applicant's ability to obtain gainful employment.

How breweries can better comply with OSHA rules

Craft breweries in Ohio and throughout the country must generally adhere to safety standards set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

The truth is there is rarely a claimant who attends a Social Security Disability hearing that does not suffer some degree of anxiety. People only file for Social Security Disability benefits when they are no longer able to work and worrying about how they will be able to pay for their living expenses. However, there are some types of severe anxiety that go beyond these concerns and worries and become medical conditions of their own.
