September 2013 Archives

Ground Zero illnesses show complexity of toxic exposure cases

Earlier this month, New Yorkers looked back on the anniversary of September 11. Over the course of this month, we have seen several news stories linking the first responders and other people who worked at the site of the World Trade Center in the days that followed September 11 with nearly 60 types of cancer.

The 10 most dangerous jobs in the U.S.

Secretary of Labor responds to annual worker fatality data

When preventable tragedy strikes in the workplace, it is critical that federal regulators, employers and employees learn as much as they can from the incident in order to prevent similar occurrences in the future.

The only benefit that Americans can hope to gain from this tragic loss of life is wisdom that can be used to prevent future fatal workplace accidents.

However, a staggering number of American workers are harmed not by injuries at work but by toxic exposure that leads to severe occupational illness. The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is currently attempting to curb some of the most serious illnesses individuals develop in the workplace through a newly proposed rule that would help to prevent toxic exposure to crystalline silica.
