Workers' Compensation Archives

The OSHA standard that is most often violated

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration sets standards of safety for the construction industry and provides training courses to help companies institute and follow safe practices. Among all the many OSHA regulations, fall protection is the one that is the most ignored and violated. This is a serious oversight, as falls are a leading cause of death in the construction industry.

How much workers' compensation can you get?

If you have been injured at your job in Michigan, you may be struggling to figure out how you can manage your finances while you are off work recovering. You may also wonder how much you can receive from workers' compensation. First, it is important for you to understand that workers' compensation is not a system that is set up to pay employees for their pain and suffering. It pays out a set amount of benefits to workers who qualify. The system uses a formula to determine how much workers' compensation you should receive.

Can employee weight management programs improve workers' health?

As more and more Americans spend 40-plus hours per week sitting at desks, the benefits of a healthy lifestyle are becoming increasingly apparent. Many employers are offering incentives for employees to develop healthy habits through work-based wellness programs.

Government Reports Reveal Most Common Workplace Injuries

The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) demands that any business or organization with more than 10 employees report all workplace injuries. In addition to reporting injuries that have been sustained on site, employers regularly collect and store information that covers accidents and near-accidents that may or may not have resulted in an injury.

Factory worker dies in unexplained accident in Detroit

A worker at a Fiat Chrysler factory in Detroit, Michigan was killed on the job recently due to a workplace accident. At the moment, very little is known about what happened. The 53-year-old man was working a regular maintenance shift starting at 5:30 a.m. at a wastewater treatment plant for the car company. About an hour later, the man's body was discovered. The circumstances of his death are being investigated, and hopefully there will be some answers soon.

What happens when an injured worker returns to work?

People get hurt on the job all the time, and in some of these cases, the injuries are severe enough that they miss a significant amount of time from work. The injured worker may even be disabled, may it be temporarily or permanently. But let's say that after some time away from work to focus on rehabilitation, that injured worker gets well and decides to return to work. What happens then?

4 injured after construction project goes awry

It goes without saying that the world of construction is dangerous. The construction site doesn't even necessarily have to include heavy machinery and powerful equipment for it to be dangerous -- although these things certainly make it a far more hazardous place to be, despite these things being imperative to the job at hand.

5 things you should know about Michigan workers' compensation

Employers in Michigan are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. It is important to note that most employers purchase insurance plans from a private insurance company. This private company is in the business of making money, which means that they underpay or deny some valid claims.
