Injured workers and securing workers’ compensation benefits for pre-existing conditions

While some jobs are inherently more dangerous than others, every worker is at risk of suffering an injury while on the job. From a construction worker who falls from scaffolding and suffers a traumatic brain injury to an office worker who develops carpal tunnel syndrome from typing at a computer all day, every job has its own set of dangers and hazards.

How global warming is hazardous to workers

For the last 134 years, scientists have tracked the earth's temperatures. Scientists first noted a significant warming trend in the earth's air temperatures during the 1980s. Since that time, recorded temperatures have continued to dramatically increase with the 10 warmest years on record being recorded since 2000, and 2015 registering as the hottest year on record.

Construction workers: beware of 'the fatal four'

Working in the construction industry requires people to take on considerable physical challenges on a daily basis. Further, they must be mentally prepared and equipped to handle the responsibilities of acting safely and within established regulations. Unfortunately, even the most physically and mentally fit workers can fall victim to a serious construction accident.

Employers must take steps to address the needs of an aging workforce

According to the Population Reference Bureau, there are more than 65 million baby boomers, the last of which will turn age 67 in the year 2031. As a generation, the baby boomers are known for many things including the rise of suburban flight and a consumerist culture and the promotion of women's and civil rights. In the coming years, experts are predicting that boomers will also become known as the generation that remained in the workforce the longest.
