Pennsylvania worker killed in oil tank explosion

Everyone deserves to feel safe at their place of employment. Whether you spend your days in a cubical or work in road construction, your employer should always be looking out for you, making sure you are well-trained and equipped with adequate protections.

Pennsylvania, like many states graced by the mountain ranges of the eastern U.S., is no stranger to heavy industry and the accidents that can result when safety and care are overlooked.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration sets a number of standards to ensure workplace safety remains a top priority for employers across the country.

Many costly workplace accidents caused by insomnia, study shows

There is only so much that a cup of coffee, a caffeinated soda or even an energy drink can do. Philadelphia workers know that there is no better solution to tiredness than getting enough sleep. But work, family activities and social commitments can prevent us from recharging our batteries completely every night.

Department of Labor releases numbers on fatal workplace injuries

Last month, the U.S. Department of Labor announced figures on the number of people around the country who were killed in workplace accidents during 2011.
