Tips for creating a safe work environment

he Occupational Safety and Health Administration is updating its injury data collection to improve workplace safety in Pennsylvania and around the country and make the public more aware of work-related accidents and injuries. While this may help to improve the work environment, employers and their employees can also take steps to prevent them.

Outdoor workers at risk for heat and lightning injuries

For Pennsylvanians who work outside, the summer months can present more risks for heat and lightning-related illnesses and injuries. In order to help protect employees, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration has launched several initiatives to spread safety awareness for the summer.

Summer driving risks with teens increase

As the school term ends for the summer, Pennsylvania families may be focused on planning vacations and other activities as they take advantage of the break. With free time on their hands, teenagers often focus on social activities as well as summer employment. However, it is also important to revisit basic driving safety concepts as the season begins to reduce the risk of serious or even deadly car accidents. AAA considers the period between Memorial Day and the return to school to be the deadliest 100 days of the year on the roads.

Improving economy linked to likelihood of automobile accidents

Many Pennsylvania drivers are well aware of the emotional and financial impacts inherent in automobile accidents. Costs associated with medical attention and car repair are compounded by the time and income lost from work. Unfortunately, when the economy is good, there is a higher number of vehicle accidents on U.S. roads.

GAO says meat, poultry plant accidents underreported

Pennsylvania meat and poultry workers along with their counterparts throughout the country may be facing injuries at a much higher rate than is being reported despite the fact that overall, slaughterhouses are safer workplaces than in the past. According to the Government Accountability Office, 151 workers in the industry died between 2004 and 2013 due to accidents on the job, and injuries are most likely underreported for a variety of reasons.
