October 2015 Archives

Some employers may avoid OSHA citations for now

New confined space requirements that were approved in May 2015 by OSHA went into effect in August of the same year. However, there was a temporary enforcement period between August and October that has been extended until January 2016 for employers engaged in residential construction. If an employer is engaged in nonresidential construction, the new safety equipment and training standards are in effect.

The success of workers' compensation claims in Pennsylvania often depends on the individual circumstances of the worker's injury. It may be easier to advance compensation claims if the injured employee works in a profession that is known to be more dangerous than many others are. To that end, some people may be interested in learning the results of a report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics that documents such incidents.
