Woman denied benefits after complications due to workplace injury

What happens when a worker from Pennsylvania is injured on the job, returns after receiving compensation and eventually becomes unable to work due to complications associated with the original injury? According to a recent ruling in another state, that person is ineligible to receive workers' compensation benefits, even though the person's inability to work was related to a previous workplace accident.

Study links incidence of fatal and nonfatal workplace injuries

A study paid for by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the RAND Center for Health and Safety in the Workplace has found some startling statistics. According to the report, states that have low nonfatal injury rates for construction workers tend to have high fatal injury rates. Interestingly, the opposite is also true. Reports have indicated that construction has the highest number of fatalities among all segments of the industrial market.

Man loses life in Pennsylvania industrial accident

According to reports, a 36-year-old Pennsylvania man died recently after being injured at work. The man was an employee at a paper factory owned and operated by Procter & Gamble Inc. in Washington Township. Officials from the company explained that the accident occurred while production lines were shut down. Routine maintenance was being performed on the machines.

Health care industry has more injuries than any other

In an annual report, the U.S. Department of Labor expressed concern over a certain industry that is the leader in occupational injuries, which should cause many Pennsylvania workers to take note. According to the report, more health care and social assistance employees contract a disease or are injured at work than any other industry in the United States. In 2010, the rate of injured individuals per 100 workers was 5.2. All other private industries in the United States had a combined rate of 3.5 per 100.
