The right equipment can prevent worker eye injuries


Worker safety encompasses many aspects-not only do employers need to create a safe working environment but also, where the nature of the work is such that requires outdoor work or work with machinery, workers should be provided with personal protective equipment. Personal protective equipment includes boots, gloves and even clothes in such industries. However, with an increase in diversification in the workforce, employers need to focus on ensuring each worker has equipment that fits them, as loose or ill fitting equipment may lead to work accidents.

Construction industry in N.C. leads in fatal workplace accidents


Workers injured in a construction workers' accident have legal benefits to consider. Although the number of workplace injuries and accidents has dropped in North Carolina, the construction industry was the leading industry for fatal workplace accidents in the past year. There were ten fatal construction accidents last year and 16 the year prior. Overall, there were 35 workplace fatalities last year and 53 the year before.

Whenever North Carolina residents drop a call and complain about their cellphone service, hoping that their network carrier will upgrade their network, they may not be aware of the risks involved in the actual process of upgrading. In fact, it is possible that the communication tower industry may be one of the deadliest in the country, given the relatively small size of the industry and the fact that 10 construction workers have already died in fall accidents since the beginning of this year. A 49-year-old North Carolina worker was among the fatalities reported this year, dying as a result of injuries sustained after falling almost 200 feet from a cellphone tower.
