Workplace Accidents Archives

New federal laws proposed to protect workers in the outdoors

Extreme temperatures--both hot and cold--can be incredibly dangerous for employees who work in the outdoors. There are often devastating consequences, particularly if workers are exposed to extreme heat without proper attire, hydration or rest. Most of the time, those consequences involve tragic fatalities.

The danger of the waste industry is only increasing

Refuse and recyclable material collectors work in the fifth most dangerous job in the United States. According to USA Today, there is an average of 30 fatal injuries and more than 1,000 nonfatal injuries each year in the waste industry.

Preventing accidents: What can you do if you feel unsafe at work?

In a recent post, we discussed how two large Maryland companies were not up to par in creating safe workplaces for their employees. That post also briefly discussed the increasing number of employees who suffer from workplace violence each year.

Two Maryland companies putting employees at risk of violence?

Every year, the National Council for Occupational Safety and Health (COSH) publishes a list of the top twelve companies around the country that fail to safeguard their employees from workplace injuries or accidents. This list is commonly called "the dirty dozen." 

Deadly jobs in Maryland and beyond

The Business Journals recently released their list of 10 deadly jobs for the period between January 2017 and September 2018. Some of the occupations aren’t necessarily a surprise — contractors and loggers, for example, whose professions expose them to myriad risks every day — but some are unexpected.

Can you get work comp if you cause a car crash while on the job?

Imagine you are a package delivery driver. You’re on the road again after just dropping off a package. You look down at your computer for a split second to determine which delivery is next in line. In that instant, you run a stop sign and crash into another driver. You are seriously injured. Almost immediately after the shock wears off, you start to worry about your medical bills and your lost wages. Since the crash is technically your fault, you’re concerned that you can’t collect workers’ compensation benefits to help cover your expenses.
