Workplace accidents: Peak season risks in distribution centers

The time leading up to the festive holiday season is the time when distribution centers in New York move into their peak seasons. Getting merchandise to all the stores in time for the big rush of shoppers typically brings about frantic activities in warehouses where safety regulations may not receive the attention they deserve. Compliance with safety regulations -- regardless of the level of pressure to perform -- can prevent workplace accidents.

Construction accidents: 2 injured when deck collapses

New York owners of construction companies have an enormous responsibility to protect the safety and health of their employees. Workers in this industry face multiple safety hazards every day, and compliance with federal safety regulations is vital to avoid construction accidents. This applies especially to those who work on repairing buildings damaged by hurricanes and other disasters.

Injured workers: Can maker cited for causing hearing loss

Many workers nationwide, including in New York, are exposed to excessive noise levels on the job every day. A spokesperson for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration put the annual number of injured workers following exposure to hazardous noise levels at 22 million. He also said exposure to sustained high levels of noise damages the nerve endings in the inner ear and could lead to irreparable, permanent hearing loss.

Workplace accident: Unharnessed architect falls to his death

It is said that architectural students are taught by their professors that they are the rulers of construction jobsites. This mindset may lead to architects disregarding safety regulations. The truth is that any person on a construction site in New York and elsewhere can be a workplace accident victim, regardless of one's position on the project. An architect is just as vulnerable as a construction worker.
