When heavy bag carrying at work leads to health problems

Millions of American employees carry around heavy bags or briefcases as a work-related necessity. Whether these bags contain laptops, paperwork, equipment or some combination of heavy objects, their weight often poses a health hazard for workers. Heavy bag carrying can lead to joint injuries, muscle tissue damage, stiffness, pain, strain and misalignment.

OSHA app focuses on helping workers beat the heat safely

Summer is finally here. After a particularly cold winter and wet spring, the heat of summer is being greeted by many as a welcome change of pace. However, most individuals can enjoy the summer heat as often as they please and no more. When they feel parched, sun-baked or simply overheated, they can return to the cool indoors or park under the shade of a tree. Many construction workers and other outdoor professionals do not have this luxury.

Dangerous factory chemicals endangering workers and the public

When a factory explosion occurs, it not only affects the business owners but also the workers, their families, first responders and the residents of the town in which the factory is located. For example, the recent tragic fertilizer plant explosion in Texas not only resulted in factory worker injuries and deaths, but also caused extensive personal property damage to a great many homes in the area.

Annual Campaign to Prevent Fatal Falls kicks off

Safety advances have been made within the construction industry that make nearly every fatal fall preventable. In addition, federal regulations insist that these safety advances be properly utilized. Tragically, fatal accidents involving falls from relatively great heights continue to occur over and over again on an annual basis. In most of these instances, employers fail to outfit their workers with proper safety equipment and/or fail to implement other mandatory safety precautions.
