Improvements in safety technology on construction sites

Construction workers in Illinois may be safer if certain types of technology are adopted on their work sites. This is one of the most dangerous industries, and in 2015, more than 900 construction workers around the country died from on-the-job injuries. Around 10 percent of all construction workers are injured on the job each year.

How employers can help older workers stay safe

Workers in Illinois and throughout the country are working later into life. Therefore, employers may need to update their workplace safety plans to account for this. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, those who were 55 and older accounted for roughly half of all workplace deaths in Minnesota over the past several years. Those who are aged 65 or older have higher workplace death rates than other age groups.

You were trying to work on the side of a building when the ladder you were on started to move. The coworker who was supposed to be holding it wasn't paying attention, and the ladder slipped out of his hands. Without the extra stability needed, you quickly fell to the ground.

Tips For Doctor Visits

Doctor visits may seem like a routine thing for most people, but if you are injured at work, every doctor visit is anything but routine.  Every form you fill out, everything you tell the doctor and every movement you make can have a major impact on your claim.  The basic rules under the Workers' Compensation Act for medical care are under Section 8. https://www2.illinois.gov/sites/iwcc/about/Pages/workers.aspx
