Metalworker fatally injured in workplace accident

Workers' compensation benefits are extremely important for the financial security of employees, regardless of field. Even employees who do not work in particularly hazardous industries can still be injured by slippery stairs or malfunctioning machinery. However, there are some industries that are more dangerous than others, and employees who work in such industries should be particularly aware of their workers' compensation benefits. A workplace accident could render you incapable of earning wages for a brief period of time, or even forever.

Occupational illnesses can be difficult to detect

Workers' compensation is extremely important for workers who are injured on the job and thus unable to earn a wage because they were rendered incapable of performing the functions of their job by performing these very functions. In many cases, on-the-job injuries are relatively easy to detect and identify. For example, if you are working on a construction site and a cable or wire detaches, dropping a heavy load on you, your injuries will be readily apparent. For some people, on-the-job health issues are not so simple.

Top Baby Names of 2014

Each year, just before Mother's Day, the Social Security Administration releases a list of the names most commonly given to newborn babies in the United States for the previous year.

How can I protect myself from unsafe working conditions?

It is not in an employer's best interests to injure or incapacitate its workers, but even still, employers cannot always be expected to look out for every possible source of injury at the workplace, especially when it comes to jobs that are inherently dangerous. This is why OSHA exists. OSHA is a federal administration that protects workers and seeks to ensure that the health and safety of employees is considered at all times.

In most instances where we discuss construction worker accidents, we are referring to lower-ranking construction workers who make their living doing the hard, hands-on labor of construction projects. However, the construction industry is dangerous for nearly everyone involved, including the managers and owners. It is a simple result of how dangerous construction sites are that anyone who is working on or around one is at risk of serious or fatal injury.
