OSHA attempts to decrease work accidents by increasing citations

For Arizona employees who are involved in serious accidents on the job, workers' compensation is there to make sure the injured get the benefits they need to help pay for medical care and time missed at work. However, it's always better to avoid work accidents in the first place. To that end, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recently increased its citation structure by a whopping 80 percent.

Workers' compensation benefits can mean a less stressful recovery

Construction sites in Arizona are no different from those anywhere else in the country: busy, chaotic and, unfortunately, potentially dangerous. While most employers take steps to ensure the well-being of their workers, some companies are less careful when it comes to following safety protocols and regulations; regardless, accidents can still occur at even the most conscientious construction sites. It's situations like this that make workers' compensation so important.

Industrial accident causes life-threatening head injuries

Arizona workers are no different from most other people in that their minds probably occasionally wander on the job, at least once in a while. While this is usually harmless, there are certain instances where that is not always the case and an accident results. Especially for factory workers and employees in fields like mining or construction, an industrial accident can be devastating, and sometimes fatal.

Arizona work injury sometimes occurs in surprising ways

Whether they like it or not, most Arizona employees spend more time at their jobs than anywhere else. While this may not seem like a big deal, it can be once individuals consider the likelihood of a work injury or serious illness and how it might negatively affect them in the long term. While some occupations come with obvious risks, other jobs may put employees' health in danger in surprising ways.
