Construction sites and the risk of electrocution

Construction workers may face a number of dangers at work, including falling off of ladders, equipment malfunctions, falling debris and others. However, many also run the risk of suffering due to electrical shock. In Staten Island, and cities all over New York, electricians may sustain a debilitating injury after they are electrocuted. Moreover, electrical accidents can also injure those who work in other trades. As a result, it is pivotal for workers in the construction industry to identify risks on the job site and take preventative measures as well.

New York workers hurt due to derailed train

For railroad workers, there are a variety of workplace hazards that may result in an accident, such as debris resulting in a train collision. In Staten Island, New York, and throughout the U.S., those who work for a railroad company should be aware of the job-related dangers they may face on a regular basis. For those who sustain an injury at work, carefully addressing the accident is essential.

How Exhaustion Makes You Vulnerable to Workplace Accidents

When you consider the substantial number of hours you put in at work, it's just a matter of time before your body weakens due to exhaustion. At such a time, you become more susceptible to errors than ever before and your judgment when confronted with hazardous situations can be of grave concern. While getting adequate rest serves as the ultimate solution, most workers ignore such a vital concept in the name of meeting domestic demands.

What are Workplace Injuries?

Every day in workplaces across the United States American workers are injured on the job. While many are minor injuries requiring little or no medical attention of any kind, many of them are far more significant and serious. For those American workers that suffer an injury requiring medical attention, workers compensation becomes a very serious aspect of their life.

Large truck drivers and work-related accidents

When it comes to workplace accidents, many people think of the dangers that construction workers and those employed in other industries face. However, large truck drivers are employed in a particularly dangerous profession and it is vital for them to understand the risks they face in Staten Island, and all over the state of New York.

Have you suffered a workplace accident?

Accidents can happen to anyone, anywhere. They are just a fact of life. However, accidents in the workplace are different than your regular run of the mill accidents. If an accident like a ladder fall happens at work, it can be very serious. If you work in any environment where accidents are possible (pretty much everywhere), you should be aware of what steps to take in the event that you fall victim to one.

Discrimination and workers' compensation

Across the country, employees face illegal discrimination in the workplace for a variety of reasons. Whether you are discriminated against because of your gender, ethnicity, age or any other unlawful factor, you should take action immediately. Moreover, it is crucial to recognize other forms of discrimination that some people may not be aware of, such as workers' compensation discrimination. At Angiuli & Gentile, our law firm knows how painful this can be for workers in Staten Island, and throughout the whole state of New York.
