Scaffold injuries might lead to workers' compensation claims

North Carolina safety authorities launched an investigation into a construction site accident that happened in Raleigh on a recent Thursday. An incident report indicates that rescue workers were called to the scene at approximately 11:30 a.m. to tend to injured workers on a scaffold. The injured workers will likely file workers' compensation benefits claims for coverage of their medical expenses.

Workers' compensation: Welders can prevent burn injuries

Welders in Raleigh and across North Carolina will undoubtedly be aware of the burn hazards they face. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration mandates that employers must protect employees by providing safe work environments that are free of known dangers. However, not all employers prioritize employee safety, leaving it up to workers to take their own precautions to avoid having to file workers' compensation claims.

Will workers' compensation benefits cover gas explosion?

Safety authorities expect employers in North Carolina to protect the health and safety of employees. While most employers comply with prescribed safety standards, unanticipated circumstances can pose safety hazards. This is when workers rely on the workers' compensation insurance system of the state.

Workers' compensation: Is black mold making you sick?

Some of the most significant threats to the safety of workers nationwide, including North Carolina, are those that they cannot see. Exposure to black mold is one such a hazard, and proving it to be work related in a workers' compensation claim can be challenging. The illness that is caused by exposure to toxic mold develops gradually over time and not overnight.

Many workers' compensation claims are for preventable injuries

Employers must conduct frequent workplace hazard assessments, analyze them and address potential injury hazards. Unfortunately, it is often only after preventable accidents happen -- some of them catastrophic -- that safety authorities come in and identify safety violations. An employee of a North Carolina arms company was a victim of a preventable amputation injury, and the worker will likely rely on workers' compensation benefits to provide financial assistance.

Workers' compensation: Contractor severs hand on Carowinds ride

Many visitors from various locations, including Raleigh, travel to Charlotte for a day of fun at Carowinds, an amusement park on the state line between South and North Carolina. The safety of all the rides is crucial, but few fun seekers pause to spare a thought for the workers who risk their safety to do maintenance on the equipment to ensure safe operation. The state-regulated workers' compensation system has dealt with many benefits claims from injured workers throughout the years.

Workers' compensation: Office environments pose many hazards

Hazards exist in all work environments, and although some are unique to the particular industry, others are more general, and they threaten the safety and health of all -- from construction sites to offices. Employers in all sectors in North Carolina are responsible for the health and safety of their employees, and for carrying workers' compensation insurance to provide injured workers with financial assistance. The risks to which office workers are exposed must not be ignored.

Workers' compensation claims might follow fatal trench collapse

Safety authorities in North Carolina have launched an investigation into a recent construction accident that occurred at the site of a building project of an apartment complex in North Raleigh. Two workers were injured, and one life was lost in an incident of which few details are known. Workers' compensation claims will likely be filed for financial assistance with unanticipated expenses.

Workers' compensation for office environment injuries

It is the impression of many people in North Carolina that office environments are mostly free of injury risks. This is a misconception because a large number of workers' compensation claims involve office workers' injuries each year. Many of the typical injuries suffered in office environments could have long-term health consequences.

Workers' compensation can ease the financial burden

Construction workers and their families in certain areas in North Carolina have reason to be concerned about the safety on work sites. Although the state-regulated workers' compensation is here to have the backs of injured workers, the possibility of losing a loved one in an on-the-job accident is real. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited four companies in Charlotte for safety violations that led to several fatalities since 2017.
