Workplace safety across age groups

Many people living in Georgia continue to work long past "normal" retirement age. While many employers recognize the value in having a multigenerational workforce, there are also challenges in establishing and enforcing safety standards that protect workers in different age groups. Unfortunately, some employers may not be aware of the unique health and safety issues that senior workers face. This can result in unnecessary injuries for this age group.

Construction workers exposed to silica

Silica, also known as silicon dioxide, is a hazardous toxin causing health problems in Georgia and around the country. Silica is in dirt, rocks, and sand. Silica dust enters the air when construction company workers are cutting materials. The workers inhale the harmful dust and many suffer as a result.

Safety measures in production facilities important

Georgia distribution centers and warehouses play a vital role in the economy because of their function in the supply chain. However, this type of work exposes employees to many hazards. Facilities managers need to make certain that they strictly adhere to the safety regulations that are enforced by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration in order to keep their workers safe.
