Staying safe in a hotel kitchen is like a double-edged knife

If you work in the kitchen of a Pennsylvania hotel or restaurant, you might feel disgruntled at times because all the credit goes to the front-of-house staff. The compliments of friendly service and excellent food hardly ever reach you and your co-workers in the hot kitchen where you face multiple hazards. While it is vital for kitchen practices to ensure customer safety, employee safety is as important.

Shouldering the pain of a rotator cuff injury

When you felt the tearing pain in your shoulder, you knew it was not a good sign. Perhaps the pain did not come at once but gradually increased until you could not lift your arm. You may have experienced a rotator cuff injury, one of the more common and painful injuries in the workplace.

Hospitals: surprisingly dangerous places to work

Pennsylvania readers know that working in the health care industry comes with its challenges, and one of these may include the increased risk of becoming ill due to exposure or suffering an injury on the job. Many people overlook another danger that health care workers face, and that is the threat of violence in the workplace.

Neglected ergonomics may rob you of health and peace of mind

Regardless of your occupation, you could be at risk of suffering ergonomic injuries that are preventable if you know the danger signs. The hazards of different types of jobs can vary. Physical demands of your job may pose ergonomic risks, which could cause injuries and time off work. The origin of the danger could be the equipment or tools you use or the awkward body position you must maintain for extended periods.

The dangers of bloodborne pathogens

You may achieve a sense of purpose and pride because you help save lives by working in a Pennsylvania hospital. Even when you go home from work exhausted and experience frustrations and sadness, you still believe in what you do.

Your work could be making you sick, but you have options

As a Pennsylvania worker, you know that you are entitled to certain benefits in the event of a work accident and injury. However, you are still entitled to the same benefits in the event that you come down with an illness that was the result of your work environment, job duties or other work-related factors.

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.

Landscapers: Do you know the poisoning risks of your job?

If you are an employee of a landscaper in Pennsylvania, you might be aware of the dangers posed by the equipment you use. But, do you know that you are also at a high risk of being poisoned?

These are Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirements, and non-compliance can be to your detriment.

What happens if you fall while climbing the ladder to success?

If you've been working at the same Pennsylvania company for a decade or more, you're to be congratulated as many people nowadays frequently change jobs in search of better pay, more benefits or the proverbial golden rings of success. Nothing can abruptly interrupt your path to success quicker than an on-the-job injury. One of the most common types of workplace injuries involves slipping and falling, or falling from ladders, rooftops or other high places.
