The link between sleep and workplace accidents

Along with food and water, all human beings need sleep to function and survive. While the National Sleep Foundation recommends that adults between the ages of 18 and 64 get between seven to nine hours of sleep each night, national statistics show that many adults simply aren't getting enough sleep. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a 2009 survey of more than 74,500 U.S. adults found that roughly 35 percent reported consistently getting less than seven hours of sleep per night.

This holiday season, temporary workers wish for no injuries or deaths

Next week, families in New York and throughout the U.S. will gather to celebrate and give thanks during the Thanksgiving holiday. Shortly thereafter, many will head out to stand in lines at actual brick-and-mortar stores or visit their favorite retailer's website to take advantage of Black Friday shopping deals and kickoff the 2015 holiday shopping season.

Why work-related stress is more serious than you may think

At times, everyone experiences feelings most readily described as being stressed out. In certain situations, feeling stressed out is not only appropriate, but may be beneficial in helping an individual take action to resolve the problems or issues that are contributing to his or her feelings of anxiety, uneasiness and general angst. In other cases, stress and its effects can be mentally, emotionally and physically damaging. This is often particularly true when an individual experiences prolonged or repeated periods of stress.

Why your claim for workers' compensation may be denied

Every worker, regardless of age and industry, can be the victim of a workplace accident or suffer work-related injuries. From a construction worker who falls while scaling scaffolding to a nurse who suffers a back injury while helping lift a patient, a work-related injury can seriously and adversely impact an individual's life in a number of ways.
