You're a chef. You love cooking for others and enjoying time in the kitchen. Unfortunately, the kitchen comes with its own dangers. There are sharp knives, hot stoves, open fires and other hazards that can lead to injuries if you're not cautious.
Many Missouri industries operate 24 hours per day to maximize not only production but also profits. This leaves many workers having to work while most people sleep. Working irregular shifts for extended periods can cause a variety of health issues.
People suffer from injuries on the job every day. In fact, a worker is hurt on the job every seven seconds in America. That means that 510 injuries happen each hour and over 12,600 happen every day.
If you're working and get hurt, do you know what you can do to help yourself? One of the best things you can do after seeking medical care is to reach out to your employer to start your workers' compensation claim.
