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

April 2014 Archives

New fracking technology may reduce workplace injuries

A Pennsylvania-based company is working to modernize fracking; the process by which natural resources like gas and oil are extracted from the ground after surrounding rock is fractured by pressurized liquid, sand or other chemicals. Schramm Inc. has created the T500XD, a drilling rig that utilizes touchscreens and joysticks to allow the machine to walk, rotate in a full circle, and load pipe. The new device is believed to increase worker safety, including those in Pennsylvania. Dangerous oil jobs that once had to be performed by humans may now be carried out by remote control machines like the T500XD.

Many Pennsylvanians work on the roadways. Police officers, paramedics and construction workers all operate in these areas, which can be fraught with dangers. Not only are these individuals susceptible to dangerous machinery, but they must also contend with moving vehicles mere feet away from their unprotected persons. Sometimes motorists make mistakes that cause an accident and leave these workers injured.

As the weather warms, companies that provide outdoor services will likely see an uptick in business. While this is good news for employers and the employees the hire, it also poses risk of work-related injuries. One Pennsylvania man knows this all too well, and the story of his survival is quite remarkable.

Some workplace safety issues are more obvious than others. Improperly maintaining machinery, for example, should be an obvious problem. A lack of protective gear and training are also easily recognizable issues that can place an employee at risk of injuries. Other factors, though, like wind, in some work environments are not readily thought of when conducting job duties. Yet, these ignored elements can sometimes cause serious harm to employees.
