Understanding accidents in confined spaces

Workplace accidents can come in a variety of forms, and Michigan residents may not give much thought to those which occur in confined spaces. These accidents have the potential to be deadly, and it is important for people who work in these environments to be aware of the risks.

How can workers try to prevent ladder falls?

Construction accidents take a myriad of forms, whether they involve equipment malfunctions or electrical shock. However, ladders can be especially dangerous for construction workers in Detroit, and all over the state of Michigan. If you have sustained an injury after falling off of a ladder at work, it is important to stand up for your rights as an employee. Moreover, you should try to take steps to prevent this type of accident if your job requires you to work on ladders.

What risks do nurses and other caregivers encounter?

 From construction site injuries to mishaps that occur in work zones, people are familiar with many of the risks that workers face. However, it is essential to keep in mind that the health care industry can be particularly hazardous. Each day in Detroit, nurses and other types of caregivers face a wide variety of risks in the workplace. If you are employed in this line of work, it is critical to address an illness or injury appropriately and take steps to prevent these hazards from arising in the first place, when possible.

How workplace culture affects safety

Regardless of the industry or environment, every workplace in Michigan has an internal culture. According to Occupational Health & Safety, this does not necessarily come directly from administration, but it does come from the way employees perceive the values of the company. Since these are often a direct result of the policies and procedures, though, management has a strong responsibility to create an environment that encourages safety.

A voice for victims of electrical shock

In the workplace, countless threats are present. For those who work in construction, job sites can be especially dangerous in Detroit, and all over Michigan. At Adler Stilman, we know how devastating these types of injuries can be, whether a worker falls from a high place, is struck by falling debris or becomes injured using dangerous machinery. Moreover, some people are hurt or even pass away due to electrical shock.

What should you know about working with robots?

While installing robots in your Michigan workplace can increase safety, there are hazards which accompany these machines. A previous blog discussed a lawsuit which was begun after a woman was killed by an industrial robot. This week’s blog will discuss proper safety techniques for employees who work with these machines, as well as the hazards which can arise.
