Study shows surprising injury rate among healthcare workers

In a place like New York City with millions of residents, the healthcare industry is incredibly important. While doctors, nurses, aides and other medical staff provide critical support to ill or injured New Yorkers, safety officials may be overlooking the risk of injury among healthcare employees themselves.

Worker safety concerns are plaguing craft brewing facilities

Craft brewing is a growing industry in America. Unlike large batch brewing, craft brewing is generally done in small batches in facilities owned by small business owners rather than brewing industry giants. The public has developed a taste for interesting small batch craft brews, which is an excellent trend for those producing them. However, as demand rises, craft breweries are increasingly suffering higher and higher rates of workplace accidents.

New York bridge worker safety concerns addressed

Last month, two serious and separate worker safety incidents occurred on a single New York bridge repair site. In response to these incidents, the worksite was shut down until the risks plaguing the bridge workers were addressed properly. Bridge construction and repair work is uniquely dangerous due to risk of serious fall injury and unique structural concerns. As the nation looks to rebuild, tear down and repair tens of thousands of structurally deficient bridges, it is time for state and federal regulators to focus on bridge worker safety.

AAA: Safety tech designed to prevent accidents is ineffectual

When American worker fatality statistics were released earlier this year, a disturbing trend was clearly established. Though a great many workplace injuries occur on jobsites, a startling number of workplace fatalities occur in transportation-related offsite accidents. The trucking industry regularly experiences worker injuries and fatalities on the road, but nearly every other major industry is increasingly suffering transportation-related worker injuries and fatalities as well.
