Safety culture can prevent work-related accident

Illinois workers in all industries might be concerned about their safety when they learn about the recorded number of occupational injuries and deaths. According to the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health, more than 6,000 on-the-job accidents occurred nationwide in 2017, and the annual death toll apparently exceeds one million. However, every single work-related accident can likely be avoided by taking only a few safety precautions.

Workplace injury: The hazards female construction workers face

Although women hold an insignificant percentage of jobs in construction nationwide, including in Illinois, they face unique hazards. In 2013, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recognized that disparity, and an alliance was formed with the National Association of Women in Construction. The two groups recently renewed this alliance and secured another five-year agreement. Their goal is to limit workplace injury incidents that happen because of the limited protection available for women.

Work-related back injury can have long-term health consequences

Illinois workers in various industries are exposed to occupational hazards that could cause life-changing injuries. Some of the most common occupational injuries are back injuries, the severity of which can vary considerably -- often causing long-term medical problems. A back injury can result from a sudden traumatic event, or it can develop over time due to micro-trauma caused by repetitive activity.

Falls on construction sites can be prevented

Construction workers in Illinois face life-threatening risks on every shift they work. Safety authorities maintain that falls cause a significant number of serious and even fatal injuries in the construction industry. Employers must follow safety regulations that can protect the health and safety of employees.
