New legislation aims to improve health care workplace safety

In December 2015, Minnesota Sen. Al Franken proposed legislation that would require the U.S. Department of Labor to issue regulations demanding that all health care providers in the United States create programs aimed at decreasing the rate of workplace injuries among health care workers. The proposed programs would involve safe patient handling policies.

Electrical safety in the workplace

Many Minnesota residents have suffered an electric shock at one time or another, but these injuries are often mild and require no medical treatment. However, electricity is also a leading cause of residential and industrial fires in the United States, and 156 workers lost their lives in accidents involving electricity in 2014, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Welding safety regulations cover a range of situations

Minnesota construction workers who work around or with tools like welders may be interested to learn that there are numerous modern regulations pertaining to their safety. In addition to rules specific to welding practices and equipment usage, OSHA has issued numerous guidelines for factors like controlling compressed gas, handling and treating different chemicals known to pose dangers and performing work within limited spaces.
