What are some job-related hazards that truck drivers face?

Those who drive large trucks for a living face many different hazards every single day. Many people are aware of the different risks they may face on the road, and the consequences of a large truck crash can be devastating. However, there are other potential areas of concern that truck drivers should watch out for. For example, truck drivers face some other workplace hazards that have nothing to do with the road, and these can also lead to a debilitating injury.

Why is the use of disability benefits on the rise?

Like many other people in Michigan, you may be worried about the dismal state of Social Security benefits, and with good reason. According to Forbes, the Social Security Administration was predicted to begin operating at a deficit by as early as 2016. Perhaps because of this impending shortage, you may have heard many rumors and assumptions floating around about why Social Security claims have grown exponentially.

The dismal state of Social Security benefits

For some time now, people have spread rumors that Social Security might not exist when they retire. This has led to some degree of panic across Michigan. However, is it true? After all, there can’t be that much smoke without fire. Can there? The unfortunate answer is yes. Social Security is indeed running out of money.

Falls remain a leading source of injury on construction job sites

If you work in construction, you understand your job may come with certain risks. Construction work is manual labor, which is inherently dangerous, especially when safety is not a priority on a Michigan jobsite. One of the most common risks construction workers face when on the job is the chance of falling while working from heights.

How Social Security disability beneficiaries can find work

Suffering from a disability does not have to be the end of your life as a worker. Many people on Social Security Disability (SSD) still have the ability to find employment, though they may have to switch jobs to accommodate their disability. If you are currently receiving disability or are planning to apply for benefits, you should know that the Social Security Administration (SSA) offers assistance in helping you retrain and find new work in Michigan.
