Earning an income is an integral and basic part of adult life. Perhaps, you attended college to get a degree in a chosen field of study before entering the workforce full-time. Then again, maybe you were among many others in Kansas who determined that college wasn't for you, and you entered the workforce right after high school. No matter how many years you've been gainfully employed, safety is always a primary concern.
Your employer has an obligation to provide proper training, information and equipment to help you avoid injury on the job as much as possible. Some jobs, however, are inherently more dangerous than others. If you happen to work in a dangerous industry, your risk for injury increases. The good news is that you can file a workers' compensation claim if you suffer injury in the workplace to collect benefits to help you cover expenses associated with the incident.
