Paramedics risk long-term harm to save the lives of others

If you are a paramedic in Minnesota, you are one of a special group of people who put their lives on the line to save others every day. Furthermore, you likely encounter situations that can have a long-term effect on your physical and mental health. Paramedics face occupational hazards that are unique to their jobs.

Is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome the office boogeyman?

Are you working in the technology industry in Minnesota, typing away on your computer keyboard for hours on end every day? Then you might soon notice the first signs of a painful and debilitating repetitive motion injury. Repeating the same motions over and over again can cause overexertion of the affected joints and other areas of your body until the physical strain becomes too much. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a repetitive strain injury that is prevalent in your field of employment.

Will the Minnesota snow put you in a hospital bed this winter?

Do you live and work in Minnesota? Then you likely know that this state is one of the coldest U.S. states every winter. With the cold comes multiple workplace hazards. While snow poses a significant fall risk, even work environments that are snow-free see more falls in winter. This is because the cold weather can drain your energy and reduce blood circulation, causing your feet to lose sensation and prevent your toes from maintaining your balance.

How high are your standards when you choose an employer?

If you are looking to enter the job market in Minnesota, you are entitled to choose your employer with as much care as he or she takes when considering you for a position. In fact, the higher your standards in this process, the lower the chances that you will suffer a severe workplace injury. If a safe workplace environment features high up on your list of requirements, you are almost sure to avoid the stress and trauma associated with occupational injuries.

Patient handling and the risk of health care worker injury

Health care workers face exposure to a number of risks every time they clock in and show up for their shifts. The risk of injury and exposure to various illnesses is an inherent part of choosing a career in this field, yet this risk does not mean that these individuals do not have the right to a workplace that is as safe as possible.

Workplace risks faced by mechanics and automotive technicians

The jobs done by mechanics and automotive technicians in Minnesota pose many safety hazards. It is the responsibility of every workshop owner to protect the health and safety of his or her employees. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration provides guidelines and regulations to prevent workplace injuries in every industry. However, it is up to the employer to provide safety training and ensure compliance with safety regulations.

The nursing profession grows more perilous

When people in Minnesota think of workers with dangerous jobs, they usually list roofers, loggers or police officers, among others. It is not likely that nurses come to mind. Nevertheless, the nursing profession is quickly rising as one of the most hazardous jobs in the country. As a professional nurse, you are probably quick to agree with that assessment.

Administrative and engineering controls can save your back

One of the primary safety challenges in all industries in the country, including in Minnesota, is to prevent back injuries. Not only do these cause business expenses totaling billions of dollars each year in workers' compensation claims, but they also result in much pain and suffering to millions of employees. Safety authorities identified manual materials handling as the primary cause of back injuries -- the majority affecting lower backs -- with most injuries occurring during lifting.

Is your job a literal pain in the neck (or back)?!

To one degree or another, all jobs carry a certain amount of risk. However, certain occupations have a much higher chance of serious work-related injuries, especially to the neck and back. This type of injury is no small matter. Injured employees deal not just with pain and suffering but missed work and lost wages as well. In fact, sometimes the injured employee must transfer to a different job or change or restrict work activities because of the injury. How at risk are you?
