How can sitting in a climate controlled office be risky?

Are you a data entry operator? Are you aware of the work-related health risks you face? The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says working on computers every day poses several health concerns to admin workers in California and elsewhere. You can avoid permanent health damage if you learn more about the hazards and how to mitigate them.

Fatal work-related accident statistics show increase

There are dangers in any type of job, and Californians should be cognizant of the level of risk they face, especially in high risk occupations. Certain industries have more workplace injuries and death than others, but anyone can be confronted with the injuries and deaths that can come about after a work accident. It is important for workers and their families to have a basic understanding of the statistics for injuries and fatalities.

Warehouse workplace accidents a growing concern

The number of warehouse jobs is growing in California and across the nation. The catalyst is the increasing number of online retailers who have no need to retail space, but must have a warehouse to store, pack and ship their items to customers. While this has benefits to the business and provides many jobs, there are inherent dangers with warehouse work.

Pro football Hall of Famer seeks workers' compensation benefits

The dangers of playing football have been debated for many years in California and across the nation. Along with the lawsuits former players have filed seeking benefits and coverage for medical expenses from the National Football League (NFL), workers' compensation claims are growing more common. The physical nature of the game of pro-football is well-known. What is being debated is whether players are warranted in seeking workers' compensation and the extent to which they should be covered. Like any other workers' compensation case, having legal advice can be key to receiving benefits.

Do you perform repetitive activities? How does your body react?

California workers in various occupations perform repetitive motions day after day for hours on end. If you are one of them, you might find your body rebelling against the punishment. This is where sprains and strains come in. It is your body's way of forcing you to rest and heal.

Audit shows delay in workers' compensation medical reviews

Workers' compensation in California is a vital aspect of injured employees receiving medical care and wages for the time they are unable to work. The key part of these benefits, however, is getting approved as quickly as possible. One aspect of this is when there is a disagreement with the employer as to whether the injury is work-related and how long the person should be out. This is when there will be a medical review. A problem that has recently surfaced with these reviews is that workers are waiting an inordinate amount of time to get a decision. Clerical problems can be a troublesome part of the workers' compensation claims process.
