Employer responsibilities regarding workplace safety

All employees have the right to expect a reasonably safe workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has put standards in place that dictate safety regulations across industries. However, it is not always possible to prevent accidents from occurring, and injuries can still occur.

Is your disability case under review?

Qualifying for Social Security Disability benefits is not always easy. If you have certain medical conditions or difficult situations, the Social Security Administration may fast-track your application. For most people, however, the process of obtaining the financial help they need is long and frustrating. More than half of first-time applicants receive rejections.

Complications that can result after a ladder fall

Construction workers often use ladders so that they can conduct their job. Ladders can be used safely, but care must be taken to ensure that they are well-maintained, placed at the correct angle and are not subjected to weights beyond their loading limit. Different types of ladders have different capacities; therefore, workers who use different types of ladders each day should be aware of how to use each one.

Can I get disability benefits if I work part-time?

If you have a disability, you likely struggle to work full-time. You may get tired more easily or be unable to physically cope with strenuous work over a long period. If you are struggling financially because of the income you have lost as a result of acquiring a disability, you must have a good understanding of the benefits that you could be entitled to.

You’ve probably heard of workers’ comp for physical injuries, but is there any merit to filing workers’ comp for stress?
