Hazards welders face at work

Welders in Arizona and throughout the country may face a variety of workplace hazards. Ideally, employers and employee will work together to mitigate as many of these hazards as possible. For instance, if a welder is performing a task that could create heat or sparks, that task should be done in a designated area. That area should be designed to resist heat and be free of any materials that are potentially combustible.

Arizona firefighters with cancer may soon get help

Arizona lawmakers are working to get firefighters help with their workers' compensation claims for cancer that developed due to their jobs. A 2017 law contained a loophole that has allowed cities across the state to deny firefighters workers' compensation for cancer treatment. The law was originally designed to help firefighters.

Workplace safety concerns for craft breweries

The craft beer industry has become more popular in Florida and around the country as more people explore unique products . However, just because the industry can be an alternative to large multinationals does not mean that the breweries involved do not also face serious workplace safety concerns. There are several common violations of federal workplace safety standards that can frequently be found at craft breweries, and workers can face serious accidents as a result.

Roof work hazards to watch out for

Many people in Arizona have jobs that require them to work on the high building rooftops. Working on a roof has many hazards, which is why the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has specific rules for roof workers that employers must follow. Workers can also mitigate the risks by learning about basic roof safety before starting their jobs.

Study shows common workplace injuries

Workers in the retail industry miss 24 days of work each year on average due to injuries, according to a claims data analysis performed by insurance holding company Amtrust Financial Services. The company looked at workers' compensation claims from more than 20,000 incidents that occurred between 2016 and 2018. Injured workers in Arizona may be entitled to funds from the state's workers' compensation system. The AmTrust Retail Risk Report identified the types of injuries that were most likely to result in lost time at work.
