Safety training can prevent workplace accidents involving teens

This is the time of the year when many young workers enter the New York workforce -- as permanent employees in their first jobs, or teens taking on temp jobs for the summer. Every year there are reports of teen workers who die in tragic workplace accidents within days of starting employment. In most cases, these deaths result from a lack of safety training and/or inadequate supervision.

Some workplace accidents cause irreversible harm to exposed eyes

A worker may say his injury happened in the blink of an eye. However, if properly fitted safety glasses protected those eyes, they could have blinked all day without being harmed. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says the eyes of approximately 2,000 workers are damaged in workplace accidents every day, adding up to over 700,000 per year. Many of those occur in New York.

Workplace accidents: Eye protection vital PPE for landscapers

Authorities say several of the safety hazards in the landscaping industry can cause severe damage to workers' eyes. Employers in this field can prevent many workplace accidents by providing employees with eye protection and by making sure that they wear it. Along with the risk of getting dangerous chemicals in their eyes, there are the hazards posed by flying objects -- from stones to pieces of wood, twigs or bark.

Serious injuries caused when wall collapses at construction site

The construction industry in New York and elsewhere continue to report preventable on-the-job accidents. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is part of an investigation into an incident that caused serious injuries to a construction worker. The site where the accident occurred is a residential home under construction in a neighboring state.
