Can high temperatures lead to workplace illnesses?

Often, people realize certain on-the-job dangers, such as falling from heights on construction sites. However, there are other hazards that may not receive as much attention but can also lead to workplace illnesses, resulting in lost lives and serious injuries. In New York, and elsewhere in the U.S., those who work outside or in a hot environment may be hurt by the high temperatures in various ways.

Falling objects and other construction accident causes

For construction workers employed in various trades, the workplace is often a dangerous place. With falling objects, careless co-workers, dangerous machinery and other hazards, many people who are employed in this line of work suffer injuries or lose their lives in job site mishaps. In Staten Island, and other cities all over the state of New York, it is essential for injured construction workers and the families of those who pass away to examine all options on the table. Sometimes, resources that come with workers’ compensation, such as help with bills and death benefits, help tremendously.

Handling slip-and-fall accidents at work

Regardless of your line of work, a number of risks may be present every day you head into your work space. If you work in the construction industry, you may have to watch out for falling debris and potentially hazardous equipment. On the other hand, those who work in office spaces may suffer an injury due to repetitive motions. At Angiuli & Gentile, we also know that many workers in New York have been hurt after slipping and falling down. As a result, it is especially important for employers and workers in all industries to try and prevent these accidents from occurring.

Slipping and dangerous workplace accidents

When people think of on-the-job accidents, some picture construction sites or workplaces involving dangerous equipment. However, workers in all fields may suffer an injury or, in some cases, lose their life after falling down. In Richmond, and cities all over the state of New York, it is very important for workers in all occupations to understand how serious slipping sometimes is and take steps to prevent these types of incidents at work.

New York man loses limb at work

From falling down to repetitive motions, there are various activities that may place workers from all fields in harm's way. However, in Staten Island, New York, and throughout the whole U.S., some people work in particularly risky fields. For example, those who work around dangerous equipment may find themselves injured in a jobsite accident or even lose their life. Depending on the extent of the injury a worker suffers, a lengthy road to recovery may lie ahead.
