What are the difficulties involved in a carpal tunnel claim?

Thousands of workers all across Arizona and the United States experience carpal tunnel syndrome. They complain of similar symptoms of numbness, tingling and weakness. The jobs they perform may be significantly different from one another, but each typically involves repetitive motions of the hands and wrists.

Workplace fatalities in U.S., Arizona

If you are like many people who work in Arizona, you are deeply disturbed when you reports about a person who has died in a work-related accident. Every industry and job type has specific safety rules to which it is supposed to adhere. These rules are designed to protect employees and ensure they have a safe environment in which to perform their jobs. Unfortunately, too many workers are injured and die on the job every year.

Who covers a work-related car accident?

You have auto insurance to help cover your medical bills and repair costs in the case of a car accident in Phoenix. At the same time, you rely on your employer's workers' compensation coverage to help you pay for expenses associated with a work-related injury. What if the two worlds collide? If you happen to be involved in a car accident while performing a work-related function, which entity would be expected to offer you financial assistance: auto insurance or workers' compensation? 

Basic ladder safety guidelines

People in Arizona might find themselves in need of using a ladder while at work for a variety of situations. While commonly associated with jobs in the construction industry, people in retail, warehouse and even office jobs might need a ladder to help them reach something. It is important for everyone to be well-versed in some of the basic safety guidelines associated with proper ladder use. Employers have the responsibility to ensure these things are communicated and followed.

How to recognize compassion fatigue

People involved in certain professions in Arizona, most particularly those related to health care, may be at risk for developing compassion fatigue. According to the Compassion Fatigue Awareness Project, constant exposure to the suffering of others, combined with the perceived futility of trying to bring about positive change in the world, can lead to both physical and mental negative health effects. 

Is this a tripping hazard?

As someone employed in Arizona, you likely don't think of everyday objects when you think "workplace incident". Most people envision freak occurrences involving heavy machinery, high voltages of electricity, fires, and so on. However, some of the most common hazards are things you likely deal with on the daily.

Proving that you were hurt on the job

It is a problem that some Arizona workers face while trying to secure compensation for a workplace injury. An employer asserts that the worker did not suffer the injury on the job, so the compensation claim is invalid. This is why when you get started with a workers’ compensation claim, you should do all you can to prove that you were hurt on the job so that your employer cannot credibly claim otherwise.

Workers focus on Electrical Safety Month during May

Employees can be injured on the job no matter what they do for a living. Often, people consider common dangers like falling and work-related motor vehicle accidents when the topic of workers’ compensation comes up. Arizona residents should also realize that electrocution and electric shock are pervasive dangers at many workplaces.
