Occupational diseases still a challenge for Arizona workers

Many workers here in Arizona seek workers' compensation for on-the-job injuries suffered during the course of work. However, the workers' compensation system also allows compensation for occupational illnesses. In many cases, the types of dangers that lead to such diseases are well known, and employers and even government agencies will work to reduce the risk. Unfortunately, these actions aren't always as effective as they should be, and workers can still suffer the consequences.

Fatigue leading cause of workplace injuries at office

Many Arizonans work in office environments where they may think themselves unlikely to suffer a serious workplace injury. However, the director of the Arizona Division of Occupational Safety reminds all Arizona workers and employers, including those working in an office environment, that they need to prepare themselves to help a colleague who has been hurt at work by an unexpected accident or an overlooked office hazard. With 50 people in this country being injured at work each minute, preparation can be the key in preventing a mishap from escalating into a serious injury or illness.
