Work injury caused by carbon monoxide -- the silent killer

Business owners in Illinois must comply with safety regulations as prescribed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Those regulations include their responsibility to protect employees from known hazards and to inform workers of potential risks. Employers must provide safety training in hazard identification and what workers should do to avoid or prevent work injury.

Work injury hazards are prevalent where forklifts operate

Employers in Illinois warehouses and fulfillment centers are responsible for the health and safety of employees. Some hazards are common to such facilities, and all workers must receive the necessary safety training. Forklifts are some of the most hazardous pieces of equipment that pose work injury risks to all employees.

Most manufacturing accidents can be avoided

Workers in factories in Illinois will always be at risk of suffering occupational injuries. The level of the dangers they face will depend on their employers' commitment to providing safe work environments. Most manufacturing accidents are preventable, and workers are entitled to protection against known safety hazards. Smart employers will understand that keeping employees safe will benefit production.

Medical expenses and lost wages can ruin financial stability

A spokesperson for an area office of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in Illinois says the owner of a pallet manufacturing company disregarded safety standards, risking the health of employees. Work-related illnesses or injuries can burden workers with mountains of medical expenses and lost wages. This does not only create financial problems for the workers, but it could also lead to increased insurance premiums for the employer.

Avoid a lifetime of pain by wearing proper footwear on the job

As a construction worker, you engage in dangerous activities while working. Climbing ladders, driving vehicles and handling machinery describes your daily life. You rely on protective gear to shield your body from injuries, and your required uniform should be comfortable enough to wear throughout long shifts during a hot Illinois summer.

Construction accidents can have devastating consequences

Of all the different industries in Illinois, employees in the construction sector are at the highest risk. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration says the rate of fatal construction accidents exceeds the average rate of deaths in all industry sectors nationwide. What is concerning is the fact that most fatal injuries are caused by a few common types of accidents, which are all preventable by compliance with safety regulations.

Lawsuit might follow fatal work-related accident

An Illinois family has many unanswered questions about the death of a loved one. After more than two weeks of uncertainty, they want to know why and how their father and husband lost his life in a work-related accident. The man worked for a wrecking company, and he was in an elevated basket when the incident occurred.
