The most dangerous jobs in America

Depending on what line of work you are in, you may face grave dangers every time you clock in. You may spend most of your day traveling in a large commercial truck or in areas where electrocution, exposure to chemicals or slipping and falling are dangers you face on a regular basis. Many occupations common throughout the United States involve some level of risk, but workers in certain industries face far more dangers in a typical workday than those in others.

Workers face several challenges while on-the-job

No matter where you work in Southern Louisiana, there are dangers on the job. Work-related accidents can happen at any time no matter how careful you and your employer try to be. Some of the most common hazards are the ones you don't think about such as working in confined spaces, clutter in common areas and trips-and-falls over extension cords. Workers who are injured in these accidents may be eligible to file for workers' compensation benefits

Tips for healthcare workers to avoid on-the-job injuries

The healthcare field is one in which many professionals take risks each day. By the very nature of their occupation, many healthcare workers are exposed to all sorts of potential dangers that can lead to both temporary and life-long problems. Injuries on the job are more common than many healthcare workers realize.

Workers in many different occupations being subject to hearing loss

There are many people across Louisiana who earn a living working in factories and refineries. These jobs often place them in situations in where they are in close contact to heavy machinery. These machines are often very loud, and the repeated exposure to this noise has left them with permanent hearing damage.

Are serious workplace injuries going unreported?

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) started requiring workplaces to compile detailed reports concerning serious injuries late last year. Before this requirement went into place, the agency did not have a system to accurately determine the number of serious injuries occurring at factories and workplaces across the United States.
