Workers' compensation: The severe hazards posed by electricity

Safety authorities recently reminded business owners nationwide, including in California, of the hazards posed by electricity. The National Institute of Safety and Health urged employers to respect electricity and never to start a project before assessing the job site and identifying potential electrical hazards. All employees must receive training in recognizing associated dangers and the appropriate methods for dealing with them.  Furthermore, employees must also be informed of the requirements and procedures for filing a workers' compensation claim in the event of an injury.

Workers' compensation claims may be fewer after new regulations

Six years ago, the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health received a petition from hotel workers' representatives that ultimately led to the agency recently issuing new regulations to prevent injuries. Housekeepers in hotels file more workers' compensation claims for cumulative and acute injuries than workers in any other industry. The new rule requires employers to implement musculoskeletal injury prevention programs (MIPP) with ergonomic standards to protect hotel housekeepers.
