Reducing workplace falling accidents in North Carolina

Thousands of people are seriously injured or killed each year in fall accidents while working in workplaces across North Carolina as well as the rest of the nation. The rates of such accidents remain stable, and more can be done to reduce the number that occur.

Car crashes can cause post-traumatic stress

When North Carolina residents are involved in a car accident, they may suffer serious physical injuries that could include broken bones, damage to internal organs and even a traumatic brain injury. However, those who were in a collision may also suffer from emotional trauma known as post-traumatic stress disorder.

OSHA reporting requirements in 2015

Some North Carolina employers may not realize that the requirements for reporting workplace incidents involving fatalities and injuries that warrant hospitalization became more stringent on Jan. 1, as mandated by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Previously, employers were only required to report incidents involving three or more workers, and employers with 10 or fewer workers were exempt from these requirements altogether.
