Early signs that you may have spinal cord injury

Whether it is after an accident at the construction site, a motor vehicle crash or through old age, spinal cord injuries are catastrophic conditions that require immediate attention to prevent it from becoming a lifelong difficulty.

Unfortunately to most Arizona citizens, it might not be obvious right away that they are suffering from the damage. Spinal cord injuries impact internal bodily functions, so they can remain hidden for a potentially long amount of time. If you had a recent accident that you believe caused major damage to your spine, you need to look out for some of these symptoms so you can receive medical treatment as soon as you can.

Time is an important factor in workers’ compensation cases

Workplace injuries still happen far too frequently in Arizona due to workplace hazards or commonplace accidents. Workers can take proactive measures to prepare for the possibility of a future injury claim by learning some of the steps in a workers’ compensation claim process.

Time is a major factor in any workers’ compensation injury claim. The time it takes to report a claim, get treatment, retain legal counsel, process a claim; the process can drag on for far too long depending on the actions of each party involved. As the injured person, timeliness is one of your greatest allies in a workers’ compensation claim process.

Taking precautions at a construction site

While being a construction worker can be very beneficial towards your family and community, it is no secret that the job has far more safety hazards than many career paths. There are numerous incidents or injuries that could occur that would impair your ability to work and cost you thousands in medical bills. It is imperative that you take as many measures as you can to ensure your personal safety.

Staying hydrated while working outside

No matter what your workplace looks like, the summer heat in Arizona presents an increased need for staying hydrated. There’s no shortage of articles and reports about the importance of staying hydrated. Especially in the summer.

Providing safe drinking water for employees is not just a nice thing for employers to do. It’s a requirement.

You don’t have to be working at heights to suffer a serious fall

From construction, to manufacturing, to health care, falls are a serious danger in a wide range of workplaces. When it comes to dangerous falls, a lot of attention goes to falls from heights. This is unsurprising, as such falls can lead to especially serious injuries and are responsible for hundreds of workplace deaths a year. However, it is important to remember that a fall doesn’t need to be from heights to cause you significant harm.

Working in confined spaces

Working in a confined space can make an ordinary job far more difficult. Not only is it small, as the name implies, the restricted area means that dangers can multiply quickly.

There are any number of things that can go wrong that could cause significant injury. Understanding the risks that come with working in a confined space can help you know the precautions you should take to do your job safely.

Getting back to work after an injury

Even when you’re compensated for your lost wages, after a workplace injury, you just want to be able to get back to work. It can get even more frustrating when there are restrictions on what you’re able to do as you transition back into your regular duties.

Then, there’s communicating all that information to your employer. You’d love to be able to say you’re ready to go back to your regular duties, but the reality is that you have some limitations.

Making long shifts more manageable

Long hours as a nurse are no surprise. It may not be your favorite part of the job, but it’s one of those things that you know about long before you sign up for nursing school.

For some nurses it’s part of the job that you deal with because you love what you do. For others, the longer hours mean that you get more days off and more time to recover between those long shifts.
