Having the world on your shoulders, a common feeling for truckers

Not only do truckers earn their livings in one of the most dangerous occupations in California, but surveys and workers' compensation data also show that they experience injuries that keep them away from work at higher rates than any other job. Although shoulder injuries come second after back injuries on the list of most common injuries among big rig operators, they cost more in time and money. It is not surprising that the term for one type of musculoskeletal shoulder injury is "trucker shoulder."

Are sleep disorders covered by workers' compensation?

Workers in a variety of occupations in California are candidates for sleep disorders caused by shift work. While workers' compensation might not cover the disorder as such, workplace injuries and certain illnesses that could be caused by the lack of sufficient sleep will likely be covered. Workers who are at risk include police officers, firefighters, paramedics, nurses, doctors, office cleaners and factory workers.

Beware, this life-saving device can be life-threatening

If your occupation has you working at heights, you might find comfort in knowing that your fall arrest system will prevent you from falling to your death. However, did you know that the danger continues even after the fall harness arrested your fall? That same device that just saved your life can be deadly if you remain suspended even for a few minutes.
