New Jersey workers and workplaces benefit from ergonomics

A Bergen County employer who purchases new desk chairs for an entire office simultaneously may be doing employees and the company a favor. Workers forced to work in uncomfortable positions repeatedly or for lengthy periods often develop health problems. To companies, those problems mean preventable New Jersey workers’ compensation claims, worker absences and lost profits. You’ve probably heard about or used ergonomically-designed furniture or work tools, but what does that really mean? Ergonomic designers study how people work and strive to maximize comfort and safety in working environments, in a quest to boost worker productivity. The new chairs in your office are supposed to make work easier to do, which means more gets done for the company’s benefit.

Construction worker killed in New Jersey during demolition

Construction workers in New Jersey were tearing down a Blockbuster store when a tragic accident took place. They had gotten the building down to one single wall, and that wall suddenly gave way and fell over. One worker was hit by the debris, and he was trapped beneath it, lying in a trench. Rescue workers said that he died at the scene of the accident. The man was 40 years old and leaves behind a pair of children.
