Industrial Workers' Injuries Archives

Warehouse workers: Tips to stay safe on the job

In our last blog post, we discussed the new injury risks and safety hazards that warehouse workers could face in 2020. The addition of advanced technology and artificial intelligence will change the environment of warehouses and many other workplaces across the nation as we move forward into the future.

Warehouse work is changing, and so are the hazards

As we welcome a new year, it is only natural to look back and see how far we have come and how much things have changed. For example, the progress of technology has certainly changed the lives of individuals as well as workplaces across the country.

Preventing a work injury could be as simple as wearing gloves

The injuries that workers fear the most are usually catastrophic ones, from a broken leg to a traumatic brain injury. There is no doubt that these injuries are incredibly harmful and life-changing for workers, however many workers might not consider just how dangerous and stressful smaller injuries they suffer on the job might be as well.

At our law firm, we represent employees who have been injured on the job. We help them in their application for workers’ compensation benefits, which are available regardless of who was at fault for the injury. We also conduct a thorough investigation of the circumstances surrounding the work injury to determine whether any third parties may be liable for our client’s harm and if so, may advise him or her about the possibility of filing a personal injury lawsuit. 

Back injuries and the injured worker

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) states that more than 20 percent of illnesses and injuries in the workplace are due to back injuries. That amounts to more than 1 million employees. The most common problem is a pulled or strained muscle. Unfortunately, once the muscles, tendons or ligaments are damaged, it becomes easier to reinjure the back.

What is an injury and illness prevention program?

Workplaces that use injury and illness prevention programs help keep employees safe. These programs are processes during which employers locate and eliminate hazards before others have the chance to suffer injuries. While many workplaces have these programs, not all do. Those who do report seeing better production in the workplace, higher quality results and reduced costs. Employees are also happier in safe environments.

Industrial accidents and workers’ compensation benefits

As an industrial worker, you know that your job can be dangerous from time to time. Even if you do your best to avoid an accident that could cause injury, this could still happen at some point in the future.

Industrial Accidents: Defective equipment claims

When a worker is injured in an industrial accident, an investigation is usually done into the accident to determine what caused it. In many cases, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is the agency that handles the investigation, especially if there was a serious injury or death involved.
