Employee saves co-worker's life after workplace accident

Employers in Arizona may recognize the importance of having one or more employees undergo first aid training after an incident in a neighboring state. Reportedly, the event occurred on a recent Tuesday at a factory that makes wooden framework to support roofs. An employee apparently suffered a serious injury in a workplace accident.

Work injury often caused by overlooked safety hazards

Safety hazards exist in all work environments, and compliance with safety regulations is vital. While each industry in Arizona has its unique dangers, some work injury risks that are common to all are often overlooked. Dehydration is one of those risk elements that can cause various physical problems, particularly when workers are exposed to heat -- both indoors and outside.

Workers' comp essential after construction, roofing accidents

Almost without exception, jobs, whether in Arizona or anywhere else in the country, carry some degree of risk. A worker can develop carpal tunnel syndrome from years at a keyboard, for example, or an employee can develop repetitive stress injuries. However, some careers carry a higher risk of injury, such as jobs where factory, electrician or roofing accidents are simply more likely to occur, no matter how safe an employer tries to make the work environment.

The basics of Arizona workers' compensation

While Arizona employees are likely aware of the existence of workers' comp, that may be the extent of their familiarity. However, since anyone can suffer a workplace accident at any time, it may benefit employees to familiarize themselves with the basics of workers' compensation benefits. In this way, employees may be able to relax and concentrate more fully on their jobs, without worrying about what might happen to them if they're injured.
