You Shouldn't Have To Fight For Workers' Comp Benefits

June 2012 Archives

Some salon workers develop illnesses after exposure to chemicals

When people in Philadelphia think of workplace accidents, they may naturally call to mind catastrophic events that cause significant injuries and deaths. Factory explosions, construction site collapses and chemical spills all fall into that category. But there are other workplace dangers that can go unnoticed for a time and only become apparent when their cumulative effects reveal themselves through troubling physical symptoms.

Fall at construction site leaves three workers with injuries

Construction is a fact of life around large cities like Philadelphia. New buildings cost money, but unfortunately because of improperly followed safely regulations, they also exact a human toll through worker injuries and deaths. Three construction workers are recovering from workplace injuries they sustained when one of them fell from an apartment building.

OSHA rules to prevent workplace illnesses not imminent

Two months ago, we discussed a Government Accountability Office report that noted increasing delays at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in creating and promulgating workplace safety regulations. The dilatory rulemaking process takes a significant toll on Pennsylvania employees exposed to dangerous chemicals and substances at their jobs. While roughly 5,000 people are killed each year in on-the-job accidents, 50,000 die from workplace illnesses.

Use of powerful prescriptions rises to treat workplace injuries

Proper medications are an important part of the treatment for harm suffered in workplace accidents. But insurers are reporting that prescriptions of heavy-duty painkillers for workplace injuries experienced a marked leap during the period from 2001 to 2008. The use of those drugs soared 63 percent during that time, and some contend that they are being used too much.
