Proving that your repetitive motion injury is disabling may hard

Whether you work in an administrative position, are a bartender or are an X-ray technician, you likely engage in repetitive motions each day on the job. Repeating the same tasks over and over again can cause tendons, bones or muscles to be overused, resulting in repetitive stress injuries such as bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome or tendonitis. These chronic conditions can make it difficult for you to continue working in the same capacity that you once did.

Individuals with multiple sclerosis may qualify for disability

If you were to meet several multiple sclerosis (MS) patients and interview them about their symptoms, then you'd find out that their experiences with the disease are quite varied. Diagnosing patients with MS is difficult as the symptoms that a patient experiences and the trajectory of the illness vary from person to person. How the disease develops is largely contingent upon the type of MS that a patient is diagnosed with.

Asbestos exposure still continues to affect workers, kills them

It seems that every time we flip on the television, we hear another commercial advertising the dangers associated with workers' asbestos exposure. The individuals featured in those commercials are older individuals. This likely gives some the impression that mesothelioma and other types of asbestos-related illnesses are some kind of senior condition that no longer threatens lives or is only something older people have to concern themselves with. This is far from the case, though.

Workers in certain professions are more likely be depressed

There are a number of factors that can cause an individual to experience symptoms of depression including a poor body image, illness, a lack of friends or family to rely on, financial difficulties or relationship concerns. There are factors in the workplace that can exacerbate those feelings, though, including having to work long hours or an unpredictable job schedule, lacking control or having a high stress role.

Heat-related illnesses are preventable

Summer brings an entirely new set of safety concerns for Pennsylvanians whose jobs involve working outdoors and/or doing physical labor. The sweltering sun and heat can be deadly if proper precautions aren't taken. Employers play a crucial role in ensuring that their workers don't suffer heat-related illnesses and injuries.

Study: Cleaning products decrease lung capacity over time

Anyone who's ever burned the midnight oil at the office is familiar with the hard work done by people who clean those buildings after most of us go home. Of course, cleaning occupations can be back-breaking. However, people who regularly use cleaning products face other serious health risks.

What's causing the surge in black lung disease?

Since the 1970s, safety officials have worked to reduce the respiratory diseases caused by inhaling coal mine dust that were all too common among miners and known collectively as black lung disease. As the 21st century began, instances of black lung disease were at a record low.
