Workers' compensation claims due to heat injuries

On-the-job injuries due to heat while working outside are not unusual, but many employers fail to consider the risk of injuries due to extreme temperatures indoors. California has recently become the first state in the country to establish a threshold for the protection of indoor workers from heat indexes. The need for the Occupational Safety and Health Standards Board to protect indoor workers, similarly to outdoor workers, has arisen from changes in weather as well as the development of new careers. Employers should take careful notice of the new guidelines in order to avoid workers' compensation claims.

Workers' compensation -- the danger of smoke inhalation

Wildfires have been raging in California, accompanied by heavy smoke. Employers who disregard the dangers of wildfire smoke may end up having to answer to California Division of Occupational Safety and Health. An employee may opt to file a workers' compensation claim if he or she has suffered this type of injury on the job.

Motorcycle accidents -- hit-and-run accident leads to injuries

One driver was the cause of serious injuries to multiple persons in two related accidents on a recent Sunday in November. At first, in a hit-and-run accident, a biker was seriously injured. Then, the fleeing driver crashed head-on into another vehicle.

Traumatic brain injuries can affect many bodily functions

The brain is typically considered the part of the body that makes a person who he or she is. It stores memories, controls bodily functions, affects personality and allows you to think. Of course, the brain also controls a number of other important aspects of your body and life.

Proposed EPA policy changes could increase asbestos exposure

Are you like other people who think that exposure to asbestos doesn't happen to "ordinary" people anymore? Most people only hear about this toxic substance when it's found during demolitions or renovations of older buildings. Moreover, people who end up suffering from diseases such as mesothelioma are older men who worked blue-collar jobs decades ago. Right?

Preventing on-the-job injuries on construction sites

Construction is a type of job that can come with certain risks for the men and women employed in this field. Despite the chance of on-the-job injuries that comes with working in construction, a California worker still has the right to a workplace that is reasonably free from avoidable hazards and preventable accidents. One of the most common reasons for injuries to construction workers is falls from heights.

End of daylight saving time increases risks of car accidents

It is once again the time to set the clocks back one hour as we head into winter. California motorists may wonder why they feel a bit sluggish for a few days after the change, but studies have shown that the biological clock of the body is thrown off by the earlier onset of darkness and the changed waking times. Furthermore, the National Road Safety Foundation says more car accidents happen in the days after the end of daylight saving time.
