Arizona court gives win to mental health in workers compensation

Many jobs are harder that others, such as construction industry jobs or posts as law enforcement officers. So, if that higher risk results in an injury or illness connected to the duty of work, a person in Arizona should not have to fight for the proper help. Unfortunately, that is still what happens for some people.

Workplace safety involves good communication

When people in Arizona go to work, they may not expect to encounter a serious emergency. However, whether there is a security risk, a danger of violence or a serious construction accident, workers can be affected even if they are not directly in the area at the time. This is especially true if they do not have the information they need to keep themselves safe moving forward. Employers are responsible for providing workers with a safe environment to do their jobs, and in many cases, part of this task is communicating clearly about potential dangers, especially in an emergency situation.

Study shows how OSHA press releases reduced safety violations

Back in 2009, OSHA introduced a policy of making any companies known that commit a serious violation of its laws and regulations. A violation would have to lead to a fine of $40,000 or more to qualify as serious, and the company would have a press released issued about it. Arizona residents should know that though the policy was discontinued in 2017, some are calling for its restoration.

Safety event puts spotlight on falls

In May, companies in Arizona and throughout the country are encouraged to participate in the National Safety Stand-Down week. During the event, OSHA will be putting the spotlight on the dangers that employees face while working at heights. An emphasis will also be placed on the negative consequences of falls that take place at work. According to OSHA, 320 construction workers died because of falls from elevation.
