What Are The Four Warehouse Dangers At Work

Warehouses are large buildings that store "things" such as raw materials, machine or device components, and finished goods for distribution to retailers. They often become busy and even frenetic places during peak demand periods of the year. This places a lot of pressure on their workers to move products rapidly explains one of New York work accident lawyers at the F&A injury law firm. Unfortunately, some warehouse managers solve this by compromising safety as well as pushing their workers too hard and/or making them work long shifts. A warehouse full of rushed people on foot moving among racing forklifts through...

How To Create Safety Training Programs for Construction Workers


Construction companies have a duty to provide proper safety training to all their workers so that serious injuries, illnesses, and deaths can be minimized.  Although larger construction site supervisors may hire outside consultants to conduct their training sessions, most moderate-sized and smaller companies create their own programs. Fortunately, OSHA (Occupational and Safety Health Administration), NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) and other government groups publish online training guidelines and standards. Here is a brief look at key factors that construction companies often consider when trying to design their own safety programs. Of course, responsible employers should already be providing...

Five Causes of Trench Accidents


Trenches are a common sight in the construction industry and present several dangers. These include falls, cave-ins, dangerous fumes and gases, and worker vulnerability to falling loads from above. The greatest danger however, is a cave-in on the workers inside the trench. Here are five factors that cause cave-in trench accidents: Inadequate Protection Systems in Place A vertical wall of soil is generally unstable.

New York City Garbage Truck Accidents Remain Deadly


Too many accidents involving New York City garbage trucks end badly, even when no one dies. This remains true since many of these large sanitation trucks weigh about 72,000 pounds. Pedestrians, motorcyclists, bicyclists -- and even passenger vehicle occupants -- rarely escape major injuries after being hit by one of these massive vehicles. Even smaller garbage trucks weighing between 50,000 and 60,000 pounds often wield deadly force when they hit the average American passenger car that weighs between about 2,600 and 4,400 pounds. One of the most tragic New York City garbage truck accidents to occur during recent years happened in...

Many Medical Malpractice Cases Involve Medical Equipment Failures


While most medical malpractice cases involve the negligent acts of doctors and medical support staff, many others are filed due to medical equipment failures. Mistakes made while using different types of medical equipment and devices can also prove catastrophic, especially when patients are already suffering from serious conditions. Furthermore, when medical equipment is improperly used, the chances of a patient developing a serious HAI (hospital-acquired infection) greatly increase. Becoming familiar with medical equipment risks can help all of us better protect ourselves when trying to determine how past medical malpractice may have occurred -- or might occur in the future. What...

It May Be the Only Option: Spinal Fusion Surgery After A Truck Or Car Accident

The Mayo Clinic likens the rubbery cushions or discs found between back vertebrae to jelly donuts, in that they encase a soft center in a tougher exterior. When the tougher exterior tears, some of the softer material may push out of the disc. These herniated discs are also sometimes called ruptured discs or slipped discs and may require spinal fusion surgery after a truck or car accident. Severe Pain Possible This protruding material may impinge on nerves. This may cause pain which often radiates down an arm or leg. In some instances, the pain is excruciating and debilitating. Nerve impingement may also...

Ceiling collapse injury lawyer

All residential and business structures are subject to ceiling collapses. Even new buildings can suffer so much severe storm damage that hidden water leaks may eventually work their way down and contribute to excessive mold and ceiling collapses. Of course, tenants living in older buildings with poorly managed plumbing problems remain among the most likely to be injured by this type of premises liability injury. Once you notice a ceiling water spot or see any water pouring down or sliding down the walls, you must ask your apartment manager (or the owner) to immediately fix all related problems.
