Preventing fall accidents in warehouses

All Pennsylvania workers deserve a workplace that is safe. This includes being provided with the proper equipment and training to do their jobs safely. To help encourage safer work environments, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration releases incident reports so that employers can improve procedures at their own workplaces.

The dangers of silica exposure

Asbestos has impacted the lives of Pennsylvania residents and others in America for decades. The first lawsuit related to the material was in 1929, and subsequent lawsuits have resulted in billions of dollars being awarded. Between 1940 and 1980, the EPA believes that 27 million American workers were exposed to asbestos with approximately 200,000 dying as a result of direct exposure.

Do you have misconceptions about workers' compensation claims?

You may know that most Pennsylvania workers have the right to certain benefits if they suffer an injury at work. However, there are many misconceptions about how this process works, and unfortunately, they can keep some workers from seeking the benefits to which they have a rightful claim.

Protecting workers from falls

Workers in Pennsylvania might experience hazards due to fall risks. A comprehensive approach to three-dimensional dangers is needed to protect workers against falling from heights or ground level falls. The leading causes of work-related fatalities and serious injuries are falls from heights and the same level.

How to safely work in hot conditions

Workers in Pennsylvania are considered to be engaged in hot work if a job results in the creation of flames, sparks or heat in general. Drilling, welding and cutting are examples of jobs that could be considered hot work. According to groups such as the National Fire Protection Association, it may be beneficial for an employer to look for alternatives to doing hot work.
