Pneumoconioses in the workplace

Pneumoconiosis is a form of interstitial lung disease, or lung disease that causes scarring to lung tissue. The most common types of pneumoconiosis are asbestosis, silicosis and black lung, which is properly called coal workers' pneumoconiosis. Workers in New Jersey should be aware that these are all caused by the inhalation of certain particles. In the above-mentioned cases, the particles would be asbestos fibers, silica dust and coal mine dust.

Preventing teen work injuries during the summer

Summer is considered by many workers to be the most dangerous season of the year. Those that operate outside are at risk of developing heat illnesses. Some companies bring in larger crowds around this time of year and could potentially push their workers too hard. It requires alert and experienced hard workers to ensure that operations go smoothly and safely.

Keeping workers safe around loading docks

Loading docks can be a dangerous area for workers in New Jersey to find themselves in. The good news is that there are basic steps that companies can take to minimize the opportunity for an accident to occur. One such step is to provide training as it relates to using forklifts. To comply with OSHA regulations, employees should be taught how to use the specific machines that they will be working with on the job.
