Preventing falls in the workplace

All Georgia employers are required to keep the workplace as safe as possible for employees. This also includes providing proper training for workers and the proper equipment for them to be able to complete the job. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration also helps employers ensure that the workplace is safe by providing advice on how to prevent potentially fatal incidents.

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.

Being proactive with workplace accidents

Georgia workers regardless of their occupation may be interested in learning more about preventing injuries in the workplace. In the past, companies have often investigated only those injuries that have actually taken place in their efforts to increase safety. However, a new paradigm suggests it may be better to proactively investigate even potential incidents that nevertheless may have been very serious if they had actually occurred.
