Tips on avoiding workplace back injury

Back pain, who needs it? Who wants it? No one does, but back pain is a common problem and has become one of the main causes of lost work days. It doesn't discriminate against certain workers, either. Nurses and paramedics may experience it when awkwardly lifting patients. Industrial workers hurt their backs when lifting heavy loads or by slipping and falling. And office workers often suffer lower back pain after spending long hours sitting in front of a computer most of the day.

Construction worker suffers on-the-job injury in 20-foot fall

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration launched an investigation into a construction accident that happened in New Jersey. A New Jersey Department of Labor spokesperson says the incident occurred on the site of a shopping mall in Hackensack. Reportedly, a construction worker suffered an on-the-job injury in a 20-foot fall.

OSHA says employer negligence to blame for fatality

In a recent release, an Occupational Safety and Health Administration director says construction workers can only be protected from severe or fatal workplace injuries when employers establish and follow effective safety protocols. They must then maintain them by providing adequate training. The agency referred to a fatal construction accident last August, blaming employer negligence for the incident. The accident occurred at a construction site of a New Jersey-based company in a neighboring state.
