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.

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.

Workers' compensation claim may follow fatal work accident

Everyone knows that some places of work are more dangerous than others, but still, all workers are entitled to safe working conditions. Therefore, companies that are aware of possible increased risks should also do everything in their power to ensure safe working conditions. A Californian company is currently under investigation by the state's Occupational Safety and Health Administration, referred to as Cal/OSHA. The investigation follows after an incident that led to the death of an employee on a recent Wednesday in October.

On-the-job injuries plagues Tesla: Workplace safety investigated

Of late, Tesla, the electric car manufacturer, has been in the news a number of times over a variety of issues, and still it seems the company's woes are not at an end. The California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health recently opened two inquiries into factory safety at plants belonging to the car manufacturer. Two workers working at the Fremont plant suffered on-the-job injuries on two consecutive days.   

K-9 in-training mistakenly attacked county employee

Dogs that are chosen for work as canine officers are selected for their fearless temperaments and obedience. It takes much time and practice to ensure that these dogs are suitable to work as effective aids for their human partners. Unfortunately, in the process of training one of these future K-9 officers, a California county worker suffered serious injuries when he was mistakenly attacked.

Workers' compensation claim possible after fatal accident

A recent fatal workplace accident in California has once again highlighted the dangers associated with construction work. The accident happened at about 4.30 p.m. on a recent Friday in August. According to reports, a signal technician, 51 years old, was struck by, and then pinned under, a steel beam.

Postal worker dies -- workers' compensation claim possible

Record-high summer temperatures have been recorded in California during the month of July. While some may enjoy the hot weather, workers may be exposed to unsafe work conditions, especially if they work in an environment where they are not protected from these high temperatures. The possibility of workers' compensation claims cannot be excluded.

Lone workers claiming workers' compensation -- what to know

The saying "safety in numbers" holds particularly true in establishing a safe working environment. Often safety awareness is created when one employee observes another. However, unsafe working conditions may lead to claims for monetary relief. In cases of workers working on their own away from others, one question arises -- do such workers have the same rights in terms of workers' compensation claims?

Workers' compensation: The risks posed by welder fumes and gases

In its pursuit of protecting workers from harm, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration prescribes safety regulations for all industries. The California Division of Health and Safety visits companies to monitor the compliance with these rules. Where necessary, OSHA puts industry-specific regulations in place to address hazards that are unique, or of exceptional concern for particular industries. Records of workers' compensation benefits claims often indicate which injuries and illnesses are prevalent in specific sectors.
