How medical professionals can stay safe at work

Healthy work environments are empowering for employees and create a safety culture that is important to maintain and improve performance. This is particularly true for medical professionals because they are exposed to many safety and health concerns. However, Minnesota hospitals and nurses could follow a few tips to remain safe on the job.

Summer job hazard awareness campaigns

While many Minnesota workers spend the warmer months indoors, those whose jobs involve outdoor activities can face increased risks during the summer. As heat increases, many people attempt to work without adjusting for the changing environment. However, heat and lightning cause numerous injuries and some deaths each year, making awareness an important focus for both employers and employees. Both OSHA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are working to remind these parties of appropriate safety precautions through educational campaigns.

Get answers to workers' compensation questions

Workers' compensation is important for those who have been injured on the job. This is especially true in high-risk occupations such as construction, warehouse work and manufacturing. But if you were injured, do you actually have a claim? That's an important question, and one that you may want to answer with the help of a good attorney.

Proposed rules aimed at improving safety for mine workers

Minnesota mine workers may be interested in learning that the Department of Labor has proposed new regulations that are aimed at improving safety in their profession. The proposed rules were released on June 7 and would mandate that mining companies conduct examinations of work sites before mine workers begin working in the locations.

Safety for teenage workers in Minneapolis

As summer approaches, many teenagers will start their first jobs. While many young people are excited about earning their first paycheck, they may not be aware of their workplace rights, especially in terms of protecting their safety. According to statistics by the Department of Labor & Industries, young workers are more prone to being injured on the job than older workers.

Flaws in injury statistics for meat and poultry workers

Meat and poultry workers in Minnesota and around the country have much higher risks of on-the-job injuries or fatalities than do other manufacturing industry workers. Even though an updated report from the Government Accountability Office indicates meat and poultry work is safer than it was in 2005, there are flaws in the statistical data that the Department of Labor gathers.
