What are 3 of the most common workplace injuries?

When asked to name dangerous professions to work in, it's common for individuals to mention roles such as factory workers, tree cutters or underwater welders. While these jobs definitely carry with them significant danger, workers in more traditional occupations risk being injured as well.

How your worker status affects injury compensation benefits

When it comes to worker benefits, not all workers are created equal. Your designation—either as an employee or an independent contractor—determines the benefits you’re entitled to. A contractor is typically exempt from workers’ compensation—in addition to other benefits, such as overtime pay, employer-sponsored healthcare and paid time off.

OSHA bulletins address temp worker safety

Those in Pennsylvania who work with, or are, temporary workers should be aware of two bulletins put out by OSHA as part of its Temporary Worker Initiative. These bulletins focus on how host employers and staffing agencies are to protect temp workers from excessive noise exposure and respiratory hazards while on the job. They back up previous OSHA regulations found in the Respiratory Protection Standard and Occupational Noise Standard.
