Understanding the link between asbestos and mesothelioma

Before 1977, both private residences and public buildings were frequently constructed in ways that utilized asbestos among their building materials. Since that time, asbestos has generally been outlawed as both a building material and as a material used in the production of numerous consumer and industrial products. However, construction workers, demolition workers and a number of other workers still come in contact with this material for a variety of reasons.

Honoring National Farm Safety and Health Week

One doesn’t normally associate the workings of New York City with the farmers of America. One generally has to drive quite far from the city before even encountering a farm. However, the work that America’s farmers do substantially impact the ability of New Yorkers to live like they do. Nearly every mouthful of “real” food that New Yorkers consume contains at least one ingredient that was grown or otherwise cultivated on a farm of some sort. As a result, protecting the nation’s farmers from harm is very much in the interests of New Yorkers.

When a piece of work-related equipment malfunctions

We frequently write about the numerous hazards that workers in New York and New Jersey tend to face on a regular basis. From slippery floors to staggering heights, we stress that both employers and workers need to remain vigilant about safety hazards in order to prevent potentially injurious or fatal accidents.

Legal options for individuals injured on the job

In the wake of injuries caused on the job, workers and their loved ones can understandably feel a bit dazed. The chaos associated with receiving medical treatment and beginning to recover can leave individuals emotionally drained. In addition, the mountain of paperwork which often accompanies this kind of injury can be overwhelming.

The unique hazards that healthcare professionals face at work

The healthcare profession is unique in many respects. Most often, individuals seek out professionals for advice, goods and other services when it suits them to do so. They approach professionals and businesses by choice and when it is convenient. By contrast, individuals often do not seek out medical professionals until their situation has become urgent and dire. Many medical personnel deal with gruesome and dangerous situations on a daily basis due to this unique reality.
