Opportunities for new employment continue to abound in Arizona. The construction industry is expecting growth in 2014 and offers many prospects for jobs. When workers are working with heavy machinery and complex operations, accidents can happen. Construction accidents can lead to permanent disability, long-term care and financial turmoil. There are ways workers can get back on their feet financially to help both them and their families. Workers’ compensation can help workers be reimbursed for an injury on-the-job.
According to the U.S. Regional Outlook 2014 by Moody’s Analytics, Arizona is expected to see a 3.1 percent increase in employment in 2014. Arizona was hit particularly hard during the recession and is high above the national average job growth of 1.9 percent. More hiring is expected in both commercial and residential construction.
2014 is looking like a good year for jobs in construction in Arizona. With high levels of growth, there are a lot of opportunities to find a good job. If a worker is hurt on the job, they don’t want that to jeopardize their long-term health and career prospects. Workers’ compensation for construction workers offers those injured while on-the-job a chance to pay off medical bills, outpatient care and any other daily living expenses as they recover. An injury around heavy machinery can be devastating.
There’s projected to be significant growth in jobs in Arizona in 2014. With a new position, it’s important to be safe at work, but accidents can happen. Even a simple accident like a slip-and-fall can have significant repercussions down the road if not treated adequately. Seeking medical attention is the most important thing workers can do if they are injured. Finding a way to pay for lost wages, hospital stays and living expenses can be handled through workers’ compensation.
