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

May 2012 Archives

Data show OSHA safety inspections reduce workplace injuries

Pennsylvania and federal workplace laws have been instituted to protect employees from accidents and injuries while on the job. Inspectors from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will visit companies from time to time to ensure that they are complying with all applicable regulations.

Hot conditions can lead to work-related illnesses and deaths

The calendar is nearly ready to turn to June, and hot and humid summer-like weather will soon reach Philadelphia and other parts of Pennsylvania. That can mean dangerous conditions for employees who spend their working hours outdoors. According to one U.S. Labor Department doctor, some of the jobs that have the greatest risk for illness brought on by exposure to the heat are roofers, construction workers and those involved in farming.

Stronger workplace accident reporting linked to improved safety

Employers in our state must abide by workplace safety laws enacted by the federal government and by the Pennsylvania General Assembly. But laws vary to certain degrees among the states, and a recent study of workplace accidents suggests that these differences are linked to the number of fatal accidents reported in a state.

Roofer recovering after falling into acid in workplace accident

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has begun an investigation into a workplace accident that occurred across the border from Pennsylvania. Reports indicate that a roofer is in critical condition after he fell through the roof on which he was working and landed in a large vat of nitric acid.

Back injuries lead to many lost working days, high medical costs

Some workers in Pennsylvania may deal with temporary or chronic back pain. According to one doctor, they are hardly alone. In his recently published book on preventing and dealing with back pain, one surgeon says that 80 percent of people will have back pain at one time or another. In addition, he notes that people spend approximately $5 billion in treating back issues and miss 93 million days from work each year.
