Arizona has seen growth in its job prospects over the past decade. New jobs come in construction, manufacturing and other sectors of the economy. With a new job comes new responsibility. A work accident can jeopardize the ability to work. In serious cases, it can lead to an accident that could have serious health repercussions. There are many opportunities in Arizona for jobs, but safety should be a priority for workers. Work accidents can lead to worse problems if not treated.

Police groups push for trauma coverage in workers' compensation

Stated generally, Arizona's workers' compensation system is designed to help workers cope with the expenses that come up after they are injured on the job or suffer from occupational diseases. However, stating things generally doesn't always help in workers' compensation issues: Things must be stated very specifically to fit specific categories. The benefits workers may receive come in predetermined amounts according to predetermined categories of injuries and illnesses.

An injury on the job, especially one resulting from a serious accident, can put a worker out of commission for a significant amount of time. Workers' compensation helps to provide a safety net for those who are injured while on the job. Some people in Arizona work around large equipment, hazardous materials. Others travel long distances on the road for their jobs. An accident while on the road that results in a concussion, back injury or other ailment can be especially difficult.

A fire that gets out of control in a factory setting can quickly turn catastrophic. Depending on the industry, there may be flammable chemicals and products that escalate the blaze.

What can occupational medicine do in Arizona?

Work hazards can take their toll on employees, especially if a worker is involved in an accident. The workplace should be a place where safety is important and risks are limited to the scope of certain occupations.

A work injury can hamper the ability to do a job and may have impacts on the body in the long term.
