What should I do after being injured at work?

Perhaps you have been lucky and never been injured at work. Maybe you are new to the workforce or in a profession that enjoys a low risk of injury. But no matter where you work or what you do, it is possible to suffer an on-the-job injury. And when you befall such misfortune, you will likely need to file a claim for workers' compensation benefits.

What are some common storage rack safety issues?

A typical warehouse is filled with steel storage racks that house palletized items. In order to store as much as possible in the warehouse, storage racks are usually very tall.

Serious injuries could result if a pallet and its load tumbles from its perch and lands on unsuspecting workers.

Cancer is not really a single disease, but rather a group of diseases. A common trait of these diseases is that they all cause the spread and uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells.

These factors could interact in ways that have yet to be explained by medical science and can include such things as genetics, diet, personal habits, age, race, and sex.
