National Safety Stand-Down Week
By Cohen & Dwin, P.A. on January 23, 2019 | In Workers' Compensation
Did you know that, among workplace injuries, falls from heights are the most fatal? According to OSHA, this single issue is responsible for over 35 percent of all fatal workplace accidents, though not all employers fully educate workers about their risks.
National Safety Stand-Down Week, June 2nd – 6th, aims to encourage employers to discuss workplace safety with workers. With information provided during this week, OSHA and partnering organizations including the Center for Construction Research and Training, the American Society of Safety Engineers, and the National Safety Council, hope to greatly reduce falls and other workplace safety concerns.
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance program intended to help injured workers get back on their feet. However, “no-fault” should not be mistaken for “no-problems,” as injured workers often face obstacles when seeking this benefit.
