Temporary workers more at injury risk

Oklahoma residents may be interested to learn that a recent report by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health indicates that temporary workers are significantly more likely to be injured while on the job than are permanent employees. The study was reported on NIOSH's blog on June 16.

Oklahoma health care workers face high risks of injury

The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration has identified the health care industry as the leading source of reported workplace injuries, even compared to other hazardous occupations like oil and gas extraction or construction. Seeking solutions, especially for what has been labeled an epidemic of injuries among nurses, OSHA regulators will be focusing investigations on hospitals and residential care facilities.

Protectin construction workers from eye injuries

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics ranks construction as second among occupations with the highest rate of eye-related injuries. In Oklahoma, the summer months expose workers to a variety environmental hazards. Some of the most common threats include heat, sunlight, humidity and high winds that may lead to an eye injury.

New OSHA and MSHA rules to be issued

Several new rules that will be issued during the remainder of 2015 by the Mine Safety and Health Administration and the Occupational Health and Safety Organization may impact workers in Oklahoma. MSHA announced that it will issue two final rules sometime this year, and OSHA has eight new rules that it says will be completed this year as well.
