Home health workers injured in accidents have recourse

Home health workers like nurses, aides, and physical and occupational therapists face hazards that their colleagues who work in hospitals and medical offices don't. They can face vicious dogs, get cornered by irate family members of their patients and have to travel regularly to sketchy neighborhoods.

How does stress adversely impact workers?

Do you have a stressful job? If so, then the way that you feel could be adversely impacting your health. A recent Psychosomatic Medicine journal article captured how individuals who hold down demanding jobs are 45% more likely to become diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes than others with less stressful careers. Other studies show that stress adversely affects workers in many other ways too.

When does workers' compensation cover physical therapy?

Physical therapy (PT) is often part of a person's healing process. People who have suffered injuries often require PT to help regain mobility they may have lost due to the injury. It's often necessary after surgery for that same reason. PT can also help ease the pain caused by injuries and help people who have suffered a disabling injury live as normal a life as possible.

What you need to know about Legionnaires' Disease

If you work in a large office building that has a water system or where your bosses regularly run a heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) unit, then you'll want to listen up. This equipment could be releasing a harmful bacteria known as Legionella into the water or air making you sick.

Do you suspect a concussion?

Despite widespread acknowledgment of the fact that texting while driving is dangerous, quite a few people still choose to use their mobile devices to send text messages, read or compose emails, or post to social media while driving.

Training and equipment maintenance are essential to crane safety

Working on a crane carries some inherent danger simply because of the heights to which they take their operators. Further, cranes are often used to lift very heavy loads like beams that need to remain secure until they reach their destination. However, when workers are properly trained and the equipment is well-maintained and used appropriately, many of these dangers can be mitigated.

Your employer should offer reasonable accommodation for an injury

Thanks to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, injured workers or those with debilitating medical conditions and severe illnesses have federal protections for their right to remain employed or seek employment despite their disabilities. Having a medical condition or disability is a protected attribute under federal law, which means that employers should not discriminate against current or potential workers because of an illness, injury or disability.
