Nurses: While you care for others, your health may be in jeopardy

Did you know that if your occupation is nursing, your job is considered one of the most dangerous jobs in Kansas? As a medical worker, you spend your days in an environment that is a potential source for contracting any one of many diseases or suffering an injury. Along with many other possible physical injuries, such as musculoskeletal trauma, you may face risks of suffering needle-stick wounds, cuts, burns, electrical shocks and more.

Scaffolding safety and preventing unnecessary injuries

Kansas construction workers face various risks every time they report to work on a job site. Working in this industry comes with the chance that you will face injury at some point, but that does not mean that you do not have the right to a workplace that is as safe as reasonably possible.

Certain industries can pose more threats than others

Anybody who is part of the American workforce will be at risk of suffering an on-the-job injury or an occupational illness. Even white collar workers in office environments could slip or trip and fall or suffer repetitive strain injuries. However, offices are not regarded to be one of the four most dangerous industries in which the potential of suffering a life-changing or fatal injury is a reality.

Keep fighting for workers' compensation benefits after a denial

As a Kansas employee injured at work, you know how important it is to secure financial help as soon as possible after an accident. In most cases, injured workers can seek this financial support through a workers' compensation claim. However, it can be extremely difficult to actually secure these benefits, and you may be frustrated to learn that your claim came back denied.

Beware -- protecting your hearing may be life threatening

Exposure to excessive noise can have severe long-term consequences. Are you working in an industry that could harm your hearing? Some believe the solution is a simple matter of wearing earplugs or muffs. However, depending on your workplace environment, you may be at risk of losing your life if you cannot hear approaching dangers.

How the workers' comp process works in Missouri

People who suffer injuries at work in Missouri may obtain compensation through the state's workers' compensation program. Benefits typically include coverage for medical expenses as well as lost wages. To be sure you get the full range of benefits your injury entitles you to, you will need to meet deadlines and submit paperwork. An attorney can help you with this process and make sure your submissions are correct.
