Four hazards that cause the most construction fatalities

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration identified four safety hazards that are the most threatening to the lives of construction workers. Employers can establish a culture of safety among workers by implementing ongoing safety training to keep employees educated about workplace safety.

Construction site safety may be what brings you home in one piece

There are millions of members of the U.S. workforce who put their lives on the line every day. One of the most hazardous occupations is construction, and if this is how you earn your income, you might experience anxiety about the risks you face and your ability to provide for your family if you should suffer an occupational injury. Not all employers in Nebraska prioritize employee safety, often leaving it up to workers to look after themselves.

Which industries pose the most danger for employees?

The availability of workers' compensation insurance benefits likely provides comfort to Nebraska employees in all professions. While even those employed in jobs that seem risk free can suffer serious injuries, some occupations are known to pose life-threatening hazards on a daily basis. Despite the known risks these workers face, many of them hesitate to report injuries for fear of retaliation, rejection of their claims, or other obstacles in pursuing maximum recovery.

Building your case for benefits after a construction site injury

Construction sites are fraught with dangers and risks for every man and woman employed in this industry. While it can be an inherently dangerous job, construction workers do have the right to a reasonably safe workplace. A site manager and company owner bear the responsibility of implementing safety measures and eliminating unnecessary hazards. 

Be on alert for neck injury symptoms after work accidents

Nebraska roadways are often heavily laden with traffic, especially during rush hours and busy work days. Even if you're a most cautious driver, you never know when someone's negligence will cause you to be in a collision. If you were carrying out work duties when your accident occurred, you will undoubtedly face several challenges as you navigate the workers' compensation system. The process is seldom without obstacles, and knowing to what you are entitled and where to turn for help is often crucial in obtaining maximum care.

Catastrophic work injuries need not rob you of a job

Nebraska workers in hazardous industries, such as construction, trucking and other dangerous work environments, might be concerned about their abilities to take care of their families if they were to suffer catastrophic, career-ending injuries. If this is something that causes you sleepless nights, you may not be aware that the workers' compensation insurance system may provide the remedy.
